    Practical jokes aren’t my thing really But this clever very smart original and creative series of gamesmanship is well worth the ride It centers around a play and or a gathering andor the machinations of an actor with a wonderful wandering sense of could have beens

    Sorry my very dear Michael Frayn but this book is a serious piece of wankery if ever I saw oneThere is also a dreadful piece of proofreading a whole page appearing at page 76 and then again at page 96 Page 76 is entirely missing it is correctly placed at p 96 should you possibly careBut I can see that you don't

    Hah I was hoaxed into reading by the title and synopsis but I'm glad I was—this is a very nice little piece It's about a practical joker playing a trick on Serious Playwright Michael Frayn and pulling it off for honestly a lot longer than you might expect I think my favorite part was reading about the way these two men each took pains to spare the other embarrassment when the jig was upAnyway it's good to know that there are people out there as gullible as I am it makes me want to forge some documentsBy the way did you hear that in the United States next year 2015 is the last year people will be allowed to have babies without a permit from the Department of Health and Human Services? It's being done to combat overpopulation Seems like an extreme measure to me but what do I know?

    This book is based on the play Copenhagen also by Frayn I recommend you read or watch it shortly before reading this book so you can understand all the references it makes to the play Frayn takes the concept of perception the central theme of the play and explores it in a much personal but also light hearted level within this book


  5. Paula Geist Paula Geist says:

    The play based on a hoax perpetrated against Frayn the author of Copenhagen If you like Copenhagen you should read this too However this book doesn't stand up well by itself


  6. Andi Andi says:

    A uick light read I found it to be the most delightful kind of nonfiction; reading was like hearing one crazy story told by two of my most interesting friends Prepare to have your mind messed with


  7. Yumna Yumna says:

    Haven't read anything else by Frayn but if this is the kind of stuff he has to offer I'd love to read Haven't read such a funny entertaining and engaging book in ages I was rolling with laughter Loved it


  8. Eric Eric says:

    A fun read based on a true story with a few twists Read it immediately after reading Frayn's play Copenhagen for full effect


  9. Maggie Maggie says:

    I would kill anyone who did this to me even though I'm against killing in this circumstance totally excusable


  10. Brooks Brooks says:

    Good book on an elaborate practical joke
