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.
"The funniest book I've read all year." (Julian Barnes)

Good but sad
Well-written and well read. Sad, though. Kept thinking I would get the next Diaries book but didn't.
