Product description

Review

'Amazingly explicit and compulsively readable' -- Guardian

'An important and illuminating book ... Lahr writes beautifully' -- David Mamet, Chicago Tribune

'As good as literary biography gets' -- New York Times Book Review

'Lahr matches insight, biography and judgement in exact proportions' -- Observer

'Sensationally exciting' -- Newsweek

From the Publisher

The classic biography of Joe Orton, originally chosen Book of the Year by Truman Capote and Nobel Prize-winning novelist Patrick White when it first appeared in 1978. Lahr chronicles Orton's working-class childhood and stage struck adolescence, the scandals and disasters of his early professional years, and the brief, glittering success of his blistering comedies, ENTERTAINING MR. SLOANE, LOOT, and WHAT THE BUTLER SAW.
