Features narrative method that takes "what's next?" out of the spectator's and replaces it with the rather deeper "how?" and "why?" Why did love pass?

UK Kirkus Review » Pinter's own selection of his 'Prose, poetry, politics: 1948-1998'. Essays on subjects as diverse as Shakespeare and cricket, interviews, broadcasts and speeches, all showing the depth of Pinter's views on human rights and individual liberty. The seriousness of his subjects are enlivened by such lines as 'Hallelujah, it works - we blew the shit out of them!' Pinter's use of silence is theatrically renowned but it is his poetry and use of words that shines through his 'various voices'. (Kirkus UK)
