Because [Harold Pinter] is eager to know how people he trusts feel about his work, he circulates his manuscripts among a select group. When he wrote his three line ode to the cricket star, Len Hutton (“I saw Len Hutton in his prime / Another time / another time”), he sent a copy to Simon Gray, then called him to ask if he had received it. “Yes,” said Gray, “but I haven’t finished reading it yet.”
