About the Author

Julian Clary

Julian Clary is a comedian, entertainer and novelist, who has toured across the world with his one-man shows. He became a household name in the late 1980s, and remains one of the country’s most popular (and least predictable) entertainers. Julian has appeared on numerous popular TV shows including Celebrity Big Brother (which he won), Strictly Come Dancing, This Morning, QI, Have I Got News For You and is a regular panellist on BBC Radio 4’s Just a Minute. He has starred in West End productions of Taboo and Cabaret, and appears in panto most years – he loves wearing silly clothes and lots of make up! Julian also narrates the Little Princess children’s television series. He lives in Kent with his husband, dogs and several chickens.

Praise for Briefs Encountered

“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

“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

“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
