by Tom Stoppard
Take James Joyce, Lenin, and Dadaist poet Tristan Tzara. Add two World Wars, Modern Art, song-and-dance, international spies, the Russian Revolution and The Importance of Being Earnest. Stir vigorously with the half-cracked reminiscence of long-retired civil servant Henry Carr, and you get Travesties, a wild and woolly romp through our now-closing century. By the author of Arcadia and Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead.
