The Noel Coward Diaries Summary

The Noel Coward Diaries: With a Foreword by Stephen Fry by Sheridan Morley

'A gold mine of gossip with a cast of thousands' GUARDIAN

The unexpurgated diaries of one of the greatest, most talented, and wittily flamboyant characters of the 20th century - with a new introduction by Stephen Fry

'Compulsive reading' SUNDAY TIMES

'19th February 1956. A A Milne has died. Lord Beaverbrook has not ... Larry is going to make a movie of The Sleeping Prince with Marilyn Monroe, which might conceivably drive him round the bend'

'28th February 1960 Princess Margaret has announced her engagement to Tony Armstrong-Jones ... He looks quite pretty, but whether or not the marriage is entirely suitable remains to be seen.'

Noel Coward was a renowned actor, dramatist, director - and star. His incredible zest, versatility and unrivalled wit are revealed in these diaries, with a cast of characters ranging from The Beatles to the Queen, Churchill to Marilyn Monroe.

Touching, funny and revealing, THE NOEL COWARD DIARIES is a superb account of one of the greatest entertainers of all time.

The Noel Coward Diaries Reviews

A constant delight. A gold mine of gossip with a cast of thousands * GUARDIAN *
Compulsive reading: a very clear portrait. What Coward has to say about other people is light-hearted, witty, often shrewd, totally without malice ... His final entertainment for everyone's pleasure is these diaries * SUNDAY TIMES *
