A HANDMAID's DIARY
10th March 2005
But they’re the easy fish. The readers I’d be most pleased to hook would be those who have neither seen the opera nor read the novel but enjoy music and theatre and gossip and food. To that end I have made this Diary as much autobiographical as operatical – after all I’m an actor by trade and no normal actor can seriously be expected to resist the chance to keep the world fully informed about himself."
Paul Bentley, 2000
from the foreword of "A Handmaid's Diary"
