Although best known for his plays, Harold Pinter has also written an extensive and wide-ranging body of other work since 1948; prose, prose fiction, poetry and political writings. In this anthology Pinter presents his own selection, among which are "A Note on Shakespeare" (1950), a paean to the cricketer Len Hutton (1969), the short stories "Kullus" (1949) and "Girls" (1995), the poetry from "School Life" (1948), and political pieces - including many letters to the press - on the United States, Cuba, Kurdistan and Nicaragua.
