These memoirs of the misadventures of a playwright read to me like fiction, not because I don't believe them, but because their drollery is so impeccably shaped. Gray is as fine a prose writer as he is a playwright, and perhaps he is even funnier on the page. You'd hope that a life filled with meetings with Harold Pinter and encounters with vain actors and even vainer drama critics would be sublimely absurd - and it is. But don't expect anodyne theatrical memoirs - this is comedy at its blackest. Review by Howard Jacobson, whose books include 'The Mighty Waltzer' (Kirkus UK)
