Literary Birthday – 13 July – David Storey

Happy Birthday, David Storey, born 13 July 1933.

Three Quotes

  1. The essence of true friendship is to make allowance for another’s little lapses.
  2. Have confidence that if you have done a little thing well, you can do a bigger thing well too.
  3. All the plays were written out with no knowledge of the theatre at all. The only plays that have ever worked are when I start with the first line and a vague idea of what they might be about and they write themselves.

David Storey is an English playwright, screenwriter, and award-winning novelist. Storey’s novels include Flight into Camden, which won the Somerset Maugham Award and Saville, which won the Booker Prize.
