Just one month to publication in paperback of BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR, out on 28th August.
Undoubtedly, Mr Ben Brantley, the New York Times theatre critic, is a brilliant, witty, sophisticated and seasoned fellow, and the citizens of New York are lucky to have someone of his calibre to brief them on what's happening in the theatre world.

I won't be the first person to say that it's not good for New York to have only one really serious and respected critic.
