The letters of Noël Coward by Noel Coward ( Book )
21 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The first and definitive collection of savvy, witty, loving, bitchy, and often surprisingly moving letters (most previously unpublished) from and to the incomparable Noël Coward, a unique and irresistible portrait of a society and age. The range, charm, and vitality of his talents--playwright, actor, composer, librettist, lyricist, director, painter, writer, cabaret singer, wit--brought him into close encounters, and often close friendships, with the great and the gifted. He knew everybody who was anybody in the theater and motion pictures, in literature and politics, on both sides of the Atlantic (he was even a spy for the Britishduring World War II, along with Cary Grant). Among those at his "marvelous party": George Bernard Shaw, T. E. Lawrence, Virginia Woolf, the Churchills, Daphne du Maurier, Greta Garbo, Ian Fleming, W. Somerset Maugham, Marlene Dietrich, Tallulah Bankhead, Edith Sitwell, FDR, Gertrude Lawrence, and many more.--From publisher description

Dorothy Parker in her own words by Dorothy Parker ( Book )
3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 456 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Despite her prolific output, ageless writer and wit Dorothy Parker (1893-1967) never penned an autobiography (although if she had, she said it would have been titled Mongrel). Combing through her stories, poems, articles, reviews, correspondence, and even her rare journalism and song lyrics, editor Barry Day has selected and arranged passages that describe her life and its preoccupations - urban living, the theater and the cinema, the battle of the sexes, and death by dissipation."--Jacket
Noël Coward : the complete lyrics by Noel Coward ( Book )
5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Playwright, actor, composer, poet, painter and songwriter, Noel Coward was perhaps the most complete entertainer the twentieth century - or any other - produced. But with his sophisticated manner and his clipped wit he became something more ... an icon of his times, the embodiment of "cool" before the term was ever thought of. On the centenary of his birth, amid the revival of his complete works, it is time to take stock of Coward the songwriter. For sixty years he produced a steady stream of words and music that was both lyrical and literate, romantic and satirical. Arguably only Cole Porter matched his reach and range. "I'll See You Again," "Some Day I'll Find You," "Mad Dogs and Englishmen," "A Room With A View," Don't Put Your Daughter On The Stage, Mrs. Worthington," "I'll Follow My Secret Heart," "I Went To A Marvellous Party," "London Pride" ... all the Coward classics are here, arranged chronologically show by show. But editor Barry Day - with the cooperation of the Coward Estate - has researched Coward's personal archives as well as other sources to compile 500 songs - over 200 more than the original 1965 volume. None of them have been published and most are totally unknown. Among them are songs from his unrecorded collaboration with Jerome Kern ... four unfinished musicals ... numbers dropped from shows ... and additional verses for well known favorites. The Complete Lyrics are lavishly illustrated throughout with more than 280 photographs of people and productions - many from his personal albums - as well as program covers, sheet music and Coward's own handwritten manuscripts. Barry Day's text, augmented by Coward's own comments, set the songs in the context of their times."--Jacket

The complete lyrics of P.G. Wodehouse by P. G Wodehouse ( Book )
4 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book sets the lyrics from his nearly forty theatrical productions within the context of each individual show, providing incisive and informative commentary for each. Lavishly illustrated with photos and memorabilia, it establishes why, throughout the 1920s and 1930s, Wodehouse was considered a top-tier theatrical figure on both sides of the Atlantic."--BOOK JACKET

Beginning with his youthful verse experiments, The Complete Verse arranges Coward's prolific public and personal verse writings in themed chapters which tackle a wide variety of subjects including war, the theatre, love, friends, travel, and God and the Infinite. --from inside jacket flap
