    I normally enjoy reading collections of journalism they are usually brief and pithy yet easy to read When I picked this up I knew of Michael Frayn the author playwright and vaguely remember his columns in the Guardian in the 90s although I didn’t read them at that point This collection stretches back to his earlier stint on the Guardian in the late 60s and his time on the Observer along with that later period at the GuardianUnfortunately the columns fall into the category of ‘humorous’ wry sideways glances at everyday life To be honest apart from one or two weak smiles the collection as a whole left me stony faced Given his reputation this was a big disappointment

    I hadn't read anything by Michael Frayn although of course he is known for various other artistic activities This book was hilarious in places but also profoundly observant and usually interesting The columns cover a long period of time but very little was dated It can really be regarded as something of a source book for British life over the second half of the twentieth century There is a lot in it though and it took me a while to get through it

    A collection of Frayn's columns mostly from the 1960s with a few from the 1990s It turned out that I'd read almost all of the 1960s columns before from other smaller collections and that my memories of them are very clear so there wasn't much feeling of rediscovery The later pieces which I hadn't read before are relatively weakIf this was my first encounter with these columns I would probably give it five stars his rear view mirror satire on birth control would earn it that alone but as a reprint it made for a disappointing reading experience
