This volume contains a selection of early works by Harold Pinter.
In the title play, everything in Flora's garden is lovely, and would be for Edward too, if it were not for the slight ache in his eyes and the mysterious matchseller at the gate.
This edition also includes A Night Out, The Dwarfs and several revue sketches.
