One of the funniest writers of his generation, Michael Frayn has been writing humorous newspaper columns since 1959, principally for the Guardian and Observer, and originally came to prominence as the thrice weekly purveyor of these short, surreal, razor-sharp explorations of human foibles, sex, politics, manners, and the events of the day.
