9780091938857: Briefs Encountered

Whoever said the afterlife would be easy...Noel Coward is the toast of twenties society...a brilliant playwright, composer and entertainer whose witty songs and pithy lines don't quite tell the full story. Goldenhurst, his house in Kent, provides a place where he can be himself. And more importantly where he can be with his lover, Jack, without fear of arrest or judgement...But their romantic idyll is ruined, first by the arrival of Noel's demanding relatives and then by a mysterious death...Many years later, film star and Coward fan Richard Stent buys the house from its current owner. But Richard has problems of his own. Goldenhurst is supposed to be a respite from all his worries but this is a house with a very rich and not always pleasant history. And more than one thing is about to go bump in the night...This is a haunting tale of love, obsession and a house full of spirits, not all of them blithe...

About the Author:

Julian Clary is one of Britain's most loved entertainers. His memoir A Young Man's Passage was a Sunday Times bestseller. He lives in Camden and Kent. He is the author of two critically acclaimed novels: Murder Most Fab and Devil in Disguise.

Review:

"Briefs Encountered is quite as hilarious, clever, stylish, charming and wickedly witty as Noel Coward... It would easier to stab a puppy or slap a baby than to dislike such an utterly lovable book.'" Stephen Fry "Julian Clary is a smart and as funny as ever...a delicious airy treat" -- Elizabeth Buchan Sunday Times "So clever, so funny, so romantic, and scary too. I don't know how she does it!" Fay Weldon "So funny ... Clary switches effortlessly between eras and demonstrates an inspired eye for comic detail." Daily Mail "Clary has produced a surprisingly complex, artfully constructed and mostly very convincing novel, which isn't bogged down by its intelligence or his obvious research. Indeed, it's all dressed up in delightfully accessible, sharp prose that's full of gags." Daily Mirror
