Candid and sometimes scathing memoirs from the Oscar-award-winning screenwriter of Stanley Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut. Against the Stream is a Proustian parade of people and events (including Thatcher and the Falklands war), written with the vividness and candor of a highly articulate and unblinking eye-witness.
Praise for Frederic Raphael 'Aphoristic, lapidary and sumptuously reflective by turns, Personal Terms is a joy to read both for Raphael's prose and mental powers. It is a book of iridescent intelligence, seductive charm, urbane temper and unflagging delight - indeed a minor masterpiece.'
