An adapted book version of an original musical screenplay based on Noel Coward's epic meeting with Marie Stopes on-board the RMS Cedric in 1921. 

OVERVIEW: Written in the style of Coward's early plays that became the toast of Broadway and the West End, When Stars Collide is a fictionalized account of a true story from the giddy days of the Roaring Twenties. 

Examining complex relationships between the classes and sexes, the story touches taboo subjects from the period: homosexuality, feminism, birth control, sex education, drug addiction and prohibition. 

With Coward regarded as one of the greatest songwriters of the twentieth century, ten new songs have been written in his inimitable style, evoking this exciting and turbulent period in his life and career.

Written by: Colin M Jarman - Kindle version (2024) Paperback (2024)

TCA3 is a comic novel that casually casts into the murky waters of literary history and reels in startling new truths & surprising revelations about The Compleat Angler, and its celebrated co-authors & legendary fishing buddies: Izaak Walton & Charles Cotton. 

Part Three rewrites the 350-year-old Compleat Angler storyline for the 21st century. It reinvents the legend of an older master teaching a younger man the intricacies of fly-fishing as an art, as a state of mind, and as an extension of life. The satirical storyline seamlessly and shamelessly updates the rustic 17th century fishing tale to the present day. And in turn, TCA3 not only mirrors The Compleat Angler … it shatters that mirror.   

TCA3 is the entertaining tale of how two men faced off, feuded, fell out, fell in, fooled around and fly-fished their way to uncovering many mysteries that had lain dormant and undiscovered within The Compleat Angler for more than three centuries. Part Three takes these disturbing discoveries and weaves them into a convoluted CSI*-style ‘literary forensics’ adventure that recreates the original Angler story, with far-reaching consequences.                               [* CSI = Chalk Stream Investigation]

TCA3 does for The Compleat Angler what The Da Vinci Code did for The Last Supper. It strips away the surface of an iconic masterpiece to expose a litany of deceit, betrayal and a stark reality far removed from the tranquil tome of true friendship and rose-coloured memories. Part Three zestfully harpoons the great white whale that is The Compleat Angler and jestfully lampoons that great white elephant The Da Vinci Code … to such an extent that it is sub-titled "The Last Fish Supper."
