The Naked Civil Servant (Flamingo)
The Naked Civil Servant (Flamingo)
by Quentin Crisp
Edition: Paperback
Price: 8.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant servant is hurt, 18 Feb 2011
Having read the autobiography of the The Naked Civil Servant I thought the DVD brought so much more depth and humour to the story. It followed the book truthfully but gave the supporting charaters a greater vitality, something Crisps' ego might not have encouraged. The book felt as if I were trapped in a lift with someone that would not stop talking about themselves. The DVD gave the viewer a wider expanse and the little but decisive quirks by John Hurt brought real character to his role. It was almost unacanny how Hurt captured Crisps' mannerisms.

4.0 out of 5 stars Social history impinged with horror, 15 Nov 2010
This review is from: The Man Of The Crowd (Paperback)
If you are looking for value for money then stay away, it's a slim single short story but with immense feeling. If you are a lover of people and what makes them tick then this story gets you thinking. Is it social history? Or maybe a crowd eating monster? If you like the Conrad style of imagery then you will love this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Clear, presice and informative, 15 Nov 2010
Mayhew is unfortunately slipping from the general publics knowledge which is a shame. His ability to write clear and in most cases dispassionately is so informative of the social structure of London in his time. His use of facts and figures does not dilute the books easy reading style. For students it is a god-send, so many ideas but better still quotable statements abound.
