TamTam Books' Tribute to Noel Coward

Noel Coward is sort of the people's Jean Cocteau. A very popular entertainer as well a great songwriter and playwright. I always found him to be stuffy, but that is because I am an American, and I think Coward's aesthetic is totally British, which makes him fascinating to me.

One can look up his writings (not big on his narrative fiction or short stories) and plays (superb) on the Internet, but here's some choice pickings of the legend. See you Around!
