About the Author:

Sheridan Morley was one of Britain's foremost theatre critics, broadcasters and biographers. He wrote the first biographies of David Niven and James Mason, as well as the lives of many other actors including his father, Robert Morley, and his grandmother, Dame Gladys Cooper. His authorised biography of John Gielgud was published to great critical acclaim.

Review:

'One of the best things about this book is the author's style. Take Coward's brief spell in the army. Morley writes: "You could indeed argue that a summons to the Camberwell swimming baths was not the most auspicious beginning to a career in the armed forces." Fortunately, King and Country took a "dim view of the usefulness of Noel to the war effort" and he was sent to "the Artists' Rifles, a well-known refuge for those of an unwarlike disposition."' -- The Independent
