About this title

Synopsis:

Set in the waning years of London's Fleet Street, this is the story of John Dyson and his colleagues in the crossword and nature-notes section of an obscure London newspaper. The ambitious young Dyson dreams wistfully of trading his dead-end job for the fame and fortune to be found in a career in television. But when he finally gets his big break - an invitation to appear on a TV program - it turns out instead to be the beginning of a series of hilarious disasters ...

Regarded by many as the best novel ever written about journalists, Michael Frayn's brilliantly funny Towards the End of the Morning (1967) is justly celebrated as a classic in Great Britain but has been long unavailable in America. This new edition features an introduction by the author.

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

'High comedy ... an extremely well-written, witty novel.' - Daily Telegraph

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

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

About the Author:
