A sublimely funny comedy about the way newspapers try to put lives into words.' Spectator

Michael Frayn's classic is set in the crossword and nature notes department of an obscure national newspaper during the declining years of Fleet Street, where John Dyson dreams wistfully of fame and the gentlemanly life - until one day his great chance of glory at last arrives.

'Towards the End of the Morning certainly keeps you laughing, but the jokes illuminate the characters and their destinies with a clarity that makes you miss a heartbeat after the laughs.' The Times

'Still ranks with Evelyn Waugh's Scoop as one of the funniest novels about journalists ever written.' Sunday Times

'The most delightful, sophisticated novel: Michael Frayn is probably England's funniest writer.' New York Times

'A gem of a comic book. It's a brilliant, fast game of poker with the author holding all the best hands.' Vogue

About the Author:

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, The Trick of It and A Landing on the Sun. Headlong (1999) was shortlisted for the Booker Prize and Spies (2002) won the Whitbread Best Novel Award. His most recent novel, Skios, was longlisted for the Booker Prize. His fifteen plays range from Noises Off to Copenhagen and, most recently, Afterlife. He is married to the writer Claire Tomalin.
