Product Description

Review

'The great majority of this absorbing monologue consists of Crisp's own words... wisely Fountain doesn't attempt any trudge through the life story... Instead, Crisp treats us to his views on television, oral sex, the nature of style and the secret of happiness... 'Daily Telegraph 'Bette Bourne is one of the most compelling figures I have ever seen on stage... He becomes Crisp almost to the life... Fountain both assembles Crisp's greatest epigrammatic hits... and knits them together with material which is plausibly in character' Financial Times Resident Alein 'turns a solitary man into a singular entertainment' Time Out

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Roy Brookes VINE VOICE on 28 July 2007
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A rambling but interesting one-man soliloquy on life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Quentin had some thought-provoking ideas and was a master of the "ad-glib" as he would say. I rather liked the way he dismissed Oscar Wilde's "Love that dare not speak its name" quote. A quick read - I doubt if it took me much more than an hour to devour this little book and it certainly made me smile in places. Sting wrote a song about him - "An Englishman in New York". Quentin was certainly a one-off eccentric and I probably would have liked him had I met him.
