Format: Paperback
The Playwright Simon Gray is an amusing, often wry chuckle-inducing kind of writer. Much of what he has to say takes the form of gentle anecdote when he recounts the frustrations of a) trying to learn to use an Apple computer and b) trying to nurse his play, The Late Middle Classes, through a theatre production. Elsewhere, he has written about the play, Cell Mates, the run of which came to an abrupt end when Stephen Fry, who had one of the main roles, disappeared, ending up in hiding somewhere in Belgium, and he has had great success with his Smoking Diaries which I have read and very much enjoyed.

I know this won't suit everyone; some people I have recommended it to have not appreciated the rigmarolish polish of his prose, but I like it's self-deprecating ironies and gently bewildered view of a world gone, at times it seems, entirely mad. I like hearing about his household of various cats and the dog George, actually a female, who appears to hold a dangerous fascination for a visiting fox.

Ignore what anyone else might say, Enter a Fox displays all of Simon Gray's usual wit and simply brilliant writing. Enjoy!

Format: Paperback
I am a fan of Simon Gray's behind the scenes diaries of his theatrical productions. His book about Stephen Fry's decamping from one of his shows and turning up in Belgium is an irresistibly candid tale of the West End debacle that was Cell Mates, and the fact that the butt of his sometimes caustic jokes is usually himself means that he gets away with some bitter and revealing passages. This new book, about the rather less-successful progress of his play The Late Middle Classes, is more rambling and less focused than his previous efforts in this genre. He explains that he is learning how to use a computer as he writes, but this doesn't excuse the sheer inconsequentiality of some of this stuff. Just because you write down every single thought that pops into your head doesn't mean that somebody shouldn't have edited it before actually publishing the thing. Nonetheless, there are little gems to be found in amongst the ramblings. Shut up about the dog, though...
