Remembering Mr. Maugham by Garson Kanin( Book )

5 editions published between 1966 and 1967 in English and held by 921 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This kaleidoscopic portrait of Somerset Maugham grew out of a long, warm friendship between him and the famous American playwright-director Garson Kanin. Though Maugham was Kanin's senior by nearly forty years, the two quickly established a never-flagging community of interests which produced exciting talk wherever they met--the Riviera, New York, Hollywood or London. Because Kanin made notes while conversation was fresh, his book takes form as a journal, though not chronological. It is an informal series of impressions tumbling forth with the verbal abandon one might expect at a private party. The tone is affectionate yet knowing, sympathetic yet tart. While recognizing Maugham's creative stature, Kanin was never blinded to his peculiar traits and habits. These he accepted with easy tolerance as part of a stimulating human being. For Maugham he became the perfect audience. As a treasury of Somerset Maugham's candid opinions, attitudes and tastes, this book abounds in off-the-cuff recollection of the past and the circumstances under which he wrote his best-known stories and novels. His lively, often impudent speech is enriched by descriptions of the Old Party in action, his dramatic presence at parties of the international set, and his lavish life at the Villa Mauresque, where Kanin and his wife, the distinguished actress Ruth Gordon, were welcome guests. Nearly every page glimmers with celebrated names--Ethel Barrymore, Oscar Wilde, Henry James, Lee Shubert, Laurence Olivier, Shaw, Picasso, Claudette Colbert, Harpo Marx, Gene Tunney, Moss Hart, Frank Sinatra, to mention a few. Unconventional in approach, this volume gives added dimension to the life and works of an enduring literary figure."--Book jacket flap

The Seventh volume in the Coward Collection. On Quadrille : ""Miss Fontanne plays the madcap Marchioness with the crackle and sheen of a five-pound note. Her eyes mock marvelously, her voice cuts like a knife into a wedding cake, and the scene in Act Three, on the eve of her elopement with Mr. Lung, is as delicious as crushed ice."" Evening Standard, 1952. ""The idea of Peace in Our Time "", Coward wrote ""was conceived in Paris shortly after the Liberation. . . I began to suspect that the physical effect of four years intermittent bombing is far less damaging to the intrinsic character of a

Present laughter; a light comedy in three acts by Noel Coward( Book )

34 editions published between 1943 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 791 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At the centre of his own universe sits matinee idol Garry Essendine: suave, hedonistic and too old, says his wife, to be having numerous affairs. His line in harmless, infatuated debutantes is largely tolerated but playing closer to home is not. Just before he escapes on tour to Africa the full extent of his misdemeanours is discovered. And all hell breaks loose. Noël Coward's Present Laughter premiered in the early years of the Second World War just as such privileged lives were threatened with fundamental social change. This edition of the play is published to coincide with the National Theatre's production running from September 2007. The text features an introduction that considers the directorial decisions and interpretation in the National's production."--Publisher's website
