Christopher BuckleyIt is not [Frayn's] fault that, as he puts it, "my father moved lightly over the earth, scarcely leaving a footprint, scarcely a shadow." Yet the problem remains—turning Tom Frayn's life story into compelling stuff. That said, by the end, it has become compelling…This is beautiful writing. This is Michael Frayn's gift, not so much to his father, who one guesses would probably just have shrugged, but to a daughter who wanted to know what it had all been like. Rebecca's fortune is quite a large one.
