Clive Fisher treats his subject sympathetically but without bias, revealing Coward's flamboyance to be a perilously thin screen designed to conceal an illegal private life. The first biographer to deal openly with Coward's sexuality, Fisher gives us a compelling portrait of a man who contributed many classic works to the British stage, and who was himself his own greatest invention.
