Description - Noel Coward in His Own Words by Noel Coward
'Two things in that play should have been cut. The second act and that child's throat' No-one in the twentieth century used language with the same precision and wit as Noel Coward. In his plays, his verse, his song lyrics, stories and in everyday life, he chose his words to uniquely stylish and truthful effect. This affectionate and surprising portrait of his life in his own words includes not only his best-loved witticisms and lyrics, but also excerpts from private papers and many hidden gems from unpublished material. This book reflects the writer's capacity for considerable depth and compassion, as well as his amazing talent to amuse.
