Personal Quote:

I find it deeply embarrassing when, because art takes notice of something important, it's claimed that the art is important. It's not. We are talking about marginalia - the top tiny fraction of the whole edifice. When Auden said his poetry didn't save one Jew from the gas chamber, he'd said it all. See more »

Trivia:

His play, "The Coast of Utopia" (Voyage/Shipwreck/Salvage) performed at the Royal National Theatre: Oliver, was nominated for a 2003 Laurence Olivier Theatre Award for BBC Award for Best New Play of 2002. See more »
