Here's what you say about us...

Michael Frayn was born in London in 1933 and began his career as a journalist on the Guardian and the Observer. His novels include Towards the End of the Morning, Headlong, Spies and Skios. His seventeen plays range from Noises Off, recently chosen as one of the nation's three favourite plays, to Copenhagen, which won the 1998 Evening Standard Award for Best Play of the Year and the 2000 Tony Award for Best Play. He is married to the writer Claire Tomalin.

This book is a delicious jeu d'esprit, and every page is stamped with Fryan's comic genius.
Tatler - Sebastian Shakespeare

'Michael Frayn is the most philosophical comic writer -- and the most comic philosophical writer -- of our time.'
Daily Mail - Michael Arditti

'One of the few authors to have had huge success with both theatrical and novelistic fictions has combined the best of both in a lovely book.'
Guardian - Mark Lawson

I absolutely loved Matchbox Theatre. They are all terrific, but A Stiff Drink was the one that made me shout with laughter whilst alone in the room.
John Finnemore, of Cabin Pressure and John Finnemore's Souvenir Programme

'He seems to be writing for the sheer pleasure of writing . . . It's like watching the most abstract, highbrow TV sketch show you can imagine.'
Spectator - Marcus Berkmann
