Ghali authored several personal essays, which appeared in The Guardianbetween 1957 and 1965. He also spent time as a freelance journalist, reporting for theTimes of London and the BBC. Following a battle with depression, Ghali committed suicide in London, at the home of his friend and editor Diana Athill, in 1969. Beer in the Snooker Club is his only finished novel.
