Synopsis

The Letters of Noel Coward

The Letters of Noel Coward $33.99

Edited by Barry Day

Published by Methuen

With virtually all the letters in this volume previously unpublished - this is a revealing new insight into the private life of a legendary figure

Coward's multi-faceted talent as an actor, writer, composer, producer and even as a war-time spy(!), brought him into close contact with the great, the good and the merely ambitious in film, literature and politics

With letters to and from the likes of George Bernard Shaw, Virginia Woolf, Winston Churchill, Greta Garbo (she wrote asking him to marry her), Marlene Dietrich, Ian Fleming, Graham Greene, Evelyn Waugh, Fred Astaire, Charlie Chaplin, F D Roosevelt, the Queen Mother and many more, the picture that emerges is a series of vivid
sketches of Noel Coward's private relationships, and a re-examination of the man himself

Deliciously insightful, witty, perfectly bitchy, wise, loving and often surprisingly moving, this extraordinary
collection gives us Coward at his crackling best

A sublime portrait of a unique artist who made an indelible mark on the 20th century, from the Blitz to the Ritz and beyond

Reviews

Precise, witty, remarkably observed and gloriously English ~ Dame Judi Dench

A uniquely charming and enticing journey through a remarkable life. Coward's own record is made all the more delightful by the wise and helpful interpolations of Barry Day, the soundest authority on the Master that there is ~ Stephen Fry
