Frayn’s Private Joke

Tags: |

After regaling them with the story of how he fell for an elaborate hoax at the hands of one of the actors in Copenhagen, Michael Frayn told an audience at the Edinburgh Book Festival yesterday that there’s a seven-word private joke hidden in his latest novel, Skios. He’ll send a bottle of champagne to the first person to spot it. ‘All you need to have done to understand it is have read my complete works – my 10 novels and 15 plays,’ he said, apparently without feeling the need to add that they’re available at all good bookshops.
