Whoever said the afterlife would be easy...?
The new inhabitants of an old house in deepest darkest Kent are about to discover the previous owner – a certain Mr Noël Coward – never quite left the building...
A wickedly dark ghost story about love, scandals and things that go bump in the night.
Briefs Encountered is quite as hilarious, clever, stylish, charming and wickedly witty as Noel Coward... It would easier to stab a puppy or slap a baby than to dislike such an utterly lovable book.'
Julian Clary is a smart and as funny as ever...a delicious airy treat
So clever, so funny, so romantic, and scary too. I don't know how she does it!
So funny ... Clary switches effortlessly between eras and demonstrates an inspired eye for comic detail.
Clary has produced a surprisingly complex, artfully constructed and mostly very convincing novel, which isn’t bogged down by its intelligence or his obvious research. Indeed, it’s all dressed up in delightfully accessible, sharp prose that’s full of gags.
