Noel Coward is much loved and lauded for his plays but as a person his charm and wit cast its glow on all who know him. Most of what we know of him comes from his very entertaining memoirs. Now, Phillip Hoare has done a marvelous job of bringing Coward into perspective. This is the most
indepth overview of his life thus presented and it brings to light Coward's professionalism and discipline. From his struggles as a child to his triumphs as a man, Hoare's research and his lucid presentation give us the whole man. This is by no means a dry, scholarly read. There are charming and hilarious anecdotes aplenty to inform you of Coward's light-heartedness and his towering wit. This is a book to savor and to share.
