Paul Webb is a playwright, whose work includes The Lodger and A Dangerous Woman. He has lectured on Ivor Novello in locations as diverse as the Bahamas and the Baltic, and has scripted a Novello concert for the Halle.
'...Paul Webb is an impassioned believer in the need to resurrect Novello's work and reputation and he castigates the British theatrical industry ... for its failure in this regard. Although Webb is clearly a diehard Novello enthusiast, it is impossible to read this biography without concluding he has a point.' New Statesman 'The best biography of Ivor Novello ... brilliant' -- Sheridan Morley 'An excellent new biography' British Academy of Composers and Songwriters 'Paul Webb's book is admirably researched and highly entertaining' The Spectator
