Description:
The first volume of Frederic Raphael's notebooks, Personal Terms, was greeted in the TLS as 'a small masterpiece'. With the publication of Ticks and Crosses, the fourth volume, we can see the sequence unfolding into a major literary achievement.Ticks and Crosses continues the story of Raphael's long and distinguished career as a novelist and Oscar-winning screenwriter, offering a writer's wry observations about the glamorous worlds of Hollywood and literary London during the second half of the 1970s. Raphael is only incidentally concerned with the rich and famous, though, and has little interest in 'names' and gossip except to notice the discrepancies between public and private faces and to convey the texture of life around him. Raphael's notebooks, never intended for publication, are exercises in candour, precise observation and wit. Ticks and Crosses adds to the growing impression that Raphael is creating an engrossingly readable, stylish and enduring chronicle of his times.
