  • BOOK REVIEW: ‘Skios’

    Michael Frayn is a very funny writer. I remember almost literally falling off my chair with laughter when I saw "Noises Off " in London years ago, and his farceur's wizardry with plotting has not abandoned him. Time was, however, when plot meant something with a beginning, a middle and an end, but Mr. Frayn now appears to be adopting Ezra Pound's modernist modification of Aristotle's rule to "beginning, whoop, and then any kind of a tail-off."
