Volume one of Edward Bond's notebooks charts the progress of his work, from 1959, when his plays were first produced at the Royal Court Theatre, to 1980, when he had achieved fame as a major writer. As well as commenting on his plays, it also considers his poems and stories.

Exploring the meeting point between politics and the art of the writer, Bond's notes offer a rare insight into one of the theatre's foremost thinkers whilst charting the creative progress of his work between 1959 and 1980. As well as providing a detailed commentary on his plays, the notebooks also contain early play drafts, poems and stories, his thoughts on life, art, Brecht, dramatic method and censorship. "1 August 1965: I would do almost anything to prevent my play [Saved] being banned except alter one comma at the request of the Lord Chamberlain." Edward Bond is "a great playwright - many, particularly in continental Europe, would say the greatest living English playwright" (Independent)
