Speak After the Beep Summary


Speak After the Beep: Studies in the Art of Communicating with Inanimate and Semi-animate Objects by Michael Frayn

A collection of writings by novelist and playwright Michael Frayn, which are based on his column in the "Guardian", covering the pomposities and inanities of public announcements, fashionable conversations and self-advertising of all kinds. From "News at Ten" on "Hamlet" to an extra chapter in the Book of Genesis describing the week after creation; from airline stewards' briefings to a new opera, "The Magic Mobile", in which Papageno tries frantically to phone home from the airport, Frayn displays a accurate ear for the ludicrous prose styles of modern life.
