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 Noel Coward - never quite left the building...It is a wickedly dark ghost story about love, scandals and things that go bump in the night.
Noel Coward meets Julian Clary in this dark and wickedly funny ghost story!
"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.'" Stephen Fry 20111208 "Julian Clary is a smart and as funny as ever...a delicious airy treat" -- Elizabeth Buchan Sunday Times "So clever, so funny, so romantic, and scary too. I don't know how she does it!" Fay Weldon "So funny ... Clary switches effortlessly between eras and demonstrates an inspired eye for comic detail." Daily Mail 20120330 "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." Daily Mirror 20120330
Julian Clary is one of Britain's most loved entertainers. His memoir A Young Man's Passage was a Sunday Times bestseller. He lives in Camden and Kent. He is the author of two critically acclaimed novels: Murder Most Fab and Devil in Disguise.
