'In my time I have said some noteworthy and exceptionally memorable things' Noël Coward.

A delightful and revealing collection of quotations from the master wordsmith, Noël Coward. In his plays, verse, song lyrics, stories and everyday life, he chose his words to uniquely stylish and truthful effect.

This insightful portrait includes not only his best-loved witticisms, bons mots and lyrics but also excerpts from his private papers and hidden gems from unpublished material. Barry Day delves into the whole range of Coward's talents, as well as his thoughts on theatre, England, the Arts,
religion, life and the man himself. In His Own Words displays the usual frivolity, and a surprising capacity for depth and compassion.
