"The Noel Coward Reader "offers a wonderfully wide-ranging selection--the first of its kind--of the best of the Master's oeuvre, entertainingly annotated and abundantly illustrated, and including material that has never before been published.
Here are scenes from Coward's famous plays, from "Private Lives "to "Blithe Spirit, " and his screenplays, from "Brief Encounter "to "In Which We Serve." Here are four of his best short stories, scenes from his only novel, and a generous selection of his verse, alongside the lyrics of many of his most sublime songs, including "Mad Dogs and Englishmen," "The Stately Homes of England," and "Mad About the Boy." "The Noel Coward Reader" is a must-have book both for those who adore his work and for those who are just discovering the many-faceted delights of his comic genius.
