Personal Quote:

I think think some of the reasons I've had a sense of happiness in my life, a sense of fulfillment, is that I began with a sense of invisibility about myself. As I evolve I become more visible. When I'm 100, if I manage to write lots of plays, I can read them all in a row and it may give me some vague sense - only vague - of what I am and was. See more »

Trivia:

He has a twin brother named Anthony Shaffer who was born five minutes before him and is also an author. See more »
