The Lives of Noël Coward with Oliver Soden
Be one of only 20 to join Noël Coward’s biographer, Oliver Soden, for lunch at The Bell Inn, Ivychurch. During the meal, Oliver will discuss his newly released book, Masquerade: The Lives of Noël Coward.
Oliver Soden’s biography of Noël Coward is the first in nearly thirty years and has been unanimously acclaimed as definitive. “This is the biography”, wrote the Telegraph, “truthful, sympathetic and thorough – that Coward deserves.” His first book, Michael Tippett, The Biography, won the Somerset Maugham Award for Storytelling. With his expertise in both music and words Soden is perfectly placed to discuss Coward’s many achievements – plays; songs; films; and a secret career of wartime espionage which he is the first to outline in full. Noël Coward’s life, in many ways, was both a party and a performance – and now a whole new audience is invited.
