This edition, which has an introduction by the playwright himself, includes The Caretaker and two television plays, The Collection and The Lover, and several other shorter pieces from the same period

At the heart of this second volume of Harold Pinter's collected work is The Caretaker, the play with which he had his first major success. The obsessive caretaker, Davies, is a classic comic creation and his uneasy relationship with the enigmatic Aston and Mick a landmark in twentieth-century drama.
