Reader's note

Since 1902, the year of the production of the Admirable Crichton, Sir J M Barrie has been one of the most interesting figures in the British Theatre. No other dramatist has given so much delight to so many people and at the same time lived so apart from public life. The newspaper 'interviewer' has long regarded him as morbidly elusive, nor has the determined roar of 'Author!' yet succeeded in drawing him into the glare of the footlights. He has probably never made a public speech which has not been 'the speechof the evening' yet the number of his efforts in this direction could very likely be counted on the fingers of one hand...learn about J M Barrie's contribution to the theatre in this wonderful book! Just one small sample of this exciting author and playwright's life!
