Synopses & Reviews
Playwright, director, actor, songwriter, singer: few artists have influenced popular culture more than the legendary Noand#235;l Coward. He chronicled high society with sparkling wit, played a crucial role in Britain's propaganda efforts during World War II, and made a splash in Hollywood. This lavishly illustrated volume, with its elegant slipcase, celebrates everything Coward. It includes 20 removable pieces of facsimile memorabilia--letters, sheet music, manuscript drafts, drawings, and programs--as well as a DVD featuring previously unseen, personal footage.
