dont miss it!,
This review is from: Prick Up Your Ears: The Biography of Joe Orton (Paperback)
if there was evr a tragic,but humourous account of a very complex and exciting guy,then this is the one.from a "mediocre" estate in anonymous leicester,he had real talent.i wish i could have met him.in this biography i feel ive got a friend who is sarcastic,witty,cutting,promiscuous,intelligent.....nothing like his friend halliwell. somehow halliwell was a living memory to orton of his grey and unhappy past.a constant reminder.
just like quentin crisp,kenneth williams,tony hancock,there are so many facets to orton,he has got to be on your shelf.....along with the other "greats".
