Format: Paperback
I read this collection to introduce myself to the works of Peter Barnes, and feel the selection gave me a good sense of his style. I confess I was not particularly enamored with his work, but he is indeed a clever and humorous playwright.

Most injoyable reading. The last monologue, "No End to Dreaming", is superb.
