Last Cigarette by Simon Gray
Book DescriptionThis is the final volume of the trilogy that began with "The Smoking Diaries". Simon Gray is determined to give up smoking. Really. At last. Can he kick the habit of sixty years? Will he, sometime soon, be able to leave his house without nervously feeling for his two packets of twenty and his two lighters? As this wonderful, wayward record of Gray's life progresses, these questions are overtaken by much larger ones. What was sex like before 1963? Will his name be in lights on Broadway? Why leave the bedside of his dying mother? With their combination of comedy and serious reflection, of sharp observation and painful self-disclosure, Simon Gray's diaries have reinvented the memoir form and are destined to become classics of autobiography.

Books By Author Simon Gray
Complete Smoking Diaries, Hardback (September 2013)
Collected in one spellbinding volume for the first time, these are the digressive, exuberant, rip-roaringly funny diaries of one of Britain's best writers and heaviest smokers
Quartermaine's Terms, Paperback (February 2013)
A light comedy about a group of educated, often eccentric English characters in an academic backwater in the early sixties. But though the jokes are excellent, the piece cuts deep. It creates a poignant sense of transience and mortality.
Super Secrets of the Successful Job Seeker, Paperback (November 2012)
With high unemployment and jobseekers fighting for fewer and fewer jobs it's never been more important to get an edge when looking for that next career move. In this book, the author explains how to get ahead, what to do and - just as crucially - what not to do in order to win in the highly competitive job race.
Simon Gray: Plays, Paperback (July 2010)» View all books by Simon Gray
Features the play "Butley" that illuminates the stark, unsentimental approach to the homosexual relationship, the cynical send-up of academic life, and the skeptical view of the teacher-pupil associations.
