When he turned 65, the playwright Simon Gray began to keep a diary: not a careful honing of the days's events with a view to posterity but an account of his thoughts as he had them, honestly, turbulently, digressively expressed. One of Britain's most amusing and original writers reflects on a life filled with cigarettes (continuing), alcohol (stopped), several triumphs, and many more disasters; a record of shame, adultery, friendship, and love.

Few diarists have ever been so frank about themselves, and even fewer so entertaining.

    " Candid, sometimes shocking, often sad memoir of the aging literary crowd in the UK. Especially the take on the dying Harold Pinter. Touching. For any Anglophile. "
