Unapologetically unconventional, he filled books and articles with his witticisms and opinions on popular culture, and packed theaters worldwide with his one-man show An Evening with Quentin Crisp. This biography chronicles Crisps life, including his birth in pre-World War I England- his life as a gay youth on the streets of London- his early attempts at writing and job-seeking- his entry into the world of modeling- and his sudden success late in life. With this definitive chronicle, Quentin Crisp and his unique worldview are once again on display.
