Collected Columns
Published : 7 Jun 2007 - Methuen
Michael Frayn, author of ten novels and a string of highly acclaimed plays, originally established himself as one of the funniest comic writers of his generation with his columns in the Guardian and the Observer throughout the 1960s.

This essential collection brings together 110 of his finest and funniest columns from the 1960s and beyond, as selected by the author himself. It is an unmissable treat for fans of Michael's unique comic voice, as well as a revelation for those who know only his novels and plays.


A treat... Frayn's playful flippant attitude is a timeless corrective to cant and pomposity
