Foolscap: Or, the Stages of Love by Michael Malone

Young drama professor Theo Ryan's life is turned upside down when he meets Joshua "Ford" Rexford-America's most acclaimed playwright and the most impossible and most talented man he's ever encountered. Because of Ford's influence, a journey begins that encompasses quirky scholars, bickering university faculty, the Renaissance giant Sir Walter Raleigh and, of course, ingenious plays.
