From the publisher

'A writing career which is the most consistently adventurous of any British dramatist.' Observer Recording dizzying changes in culture and politics, this is a powerful compilation of prose and poetry by one of the distinctive thinkers of our time. The elegant essays range from a celebration of Mad Men to a diagnosis of the incoherence of Conservatism in the new century. The poems, in contrast, are private, tender meditations. 'Always, there is a breadth and a caustic wit reminiscent of his idol Chekhov.' Spectator 'David Hare's great quality has always been his refusal to accept the division between fact and imagination. His creative invention is fired by public realities and in turn he makes those realities feel deeply personal. That same quality is wonderfully at work in his essays and poems. Whether he is writing about Tony Blair or Joan Didion, whether he is writing out of love or rage, evoking the intimate moments of his own life or the great moral questions of our times, he brings his subjects to life with an irresistible immediacy. All the wit, combativeness, energy and edge he has brought to the stage are present here on the page.' Fintan O'Toole 'A reliable source of delight.' New Statesman
