Brief Encounter

Paperback
The simple story of an unrequited love affair between a suburban doctor and a middle-class housewife, Brief Encounter is perhaps the most romantic film in the history of British cinema. Noel Cowards' screenplay conjures the drab, emotionally restrained world of post-World War II Britain better than almost any other literary text. This edition is being published to coincide with the centenary of Coward's birth and contains an illuminating Foreword on his work by his official biographer, Sheridan Morley.
