The playwright Simon Gray began to keep a diary at 65, and continued until shortly before his death in 2008. Published to enormous acclaim, its four volumes are gathered here for the first time. Like Pepys, he writes without self-censorship, the messy business of life spilling from the page. Breathtakingly funny, painfully honest and sparkling with wit, he charts triumphs, disasters, love, friendship, alcohol, adultery - and the diagnosis of the cancer that will kill him.
