A sublimely funny comedy about the way newspapers try to put lives into words.' Spectator Michael Frayn's classic is set in the crossword and nature notes department of an obscure national newspaper during the declining years of Fleet Street, where John Dyson dreams wistfully of fame and the gentlemanly life - until one day his great chance of glory at last arrives. 'Towards the End of the Morning certainly keeps you laughing, but the jokes illuminate the characters and their destinies with a clarity that makes you miss a heartbeat after the laughs.' The Times 'Still ranks with Evelyn Waugh's Scoop as one of the funniest novels about journalists ever written.' Sunday Times 'The most delightful, sophisticated novel: Michael Frayn is probably England's funniest writer.' New York Times 'A gem of a comic book. It's a brilliant, fast game of poker with the author holding all the best hands.' Vogue
