Fully equal to its successful predecessor, Interplay: a Kind of Commonplace Book (OUP 1995), this volume has the same breadth, the same wide range of reference, the same sharp eye for the symptomatic incident, the same revealing pronouncements.

Review quote

D.J.Enright's Play Resumed: A journal ... is ... always entertaining and often profound. Robert Conquest, TLS D.J. Enright is one of the outstanding writers of his generation - an admirable poet, a wise critic and much else besides ... the whole book is notable for wit and insight; it is a book to read, and it will be a book to revisit. John Gross, Sunday Telegraph He is a supremely subtle and incorrigibly humorous person of letters, who is as sharply critical of his own words and sentences as of those of others.
