Has Michael Frayn retired?

In The Guardian, Mark Lawson talks to playwright and novelist Michael Frayn.
In the study of his Surrey home, the low hum of a word processor hints reassuringly at potential future titles. But is it true that a second leading British dramatist is following Harold Pinter into retirement? "Well," Frayn says. "If you don't actually have a job, it's very hard to know if you've retired from it. Nobody comes in and gives you a clock." The newspaper story had suggested that Frayn's next book, The Human Touch - a volume of philosophical reflections out in September - would be his final publication. "Yes, it may well be. It's extremely difficult to know. I've always felt, throughout my working life, that I'd be quite unable to write again as of next Monday."
