Fraser writes loving ode to Pinter

"She also catches a wonderful dialogue between Pinter and his friend and literary hero, Samuel Beckett, that ought to resonate with anyone who has seen their plays. After Pinter had gone on some time with a political harangue, he said to Beckett: 'I'm sorry, Sam, if I sound very gloomy.'

"Beckett replied, 'Oh, you can't be more gloomy than I am, Harold.'" --Jim Higgins

(See Pinter in my recommended reading.)
