If it's been in their collection for some time, say years old or more, some pages might be discoloured and there may be other minor age blemishes, but that won't affect its readability.

Product description

Synopsis

This work dissects the lives of two extraordinary men and one remarkable woman who defied the sexual prejudices of their age and lived by their own rules. It tells the rags-to-riches story of Fred Barnes, a singer, dancer, comedian and scourge of the military; Naomi Jacob, a terrible but prolific novelist, broadcaster and cross-dresser; and Arthur Marshall, wit, television personality and "portly sunbeam". Paul Bailey describes gay life when it was still illegal, and how he became fascinated by these three characters, all gay in more senses than one.

About the Author

Paul Bailey is the author of eight novels, two of which were shortlisted for the Booker Prize. He has also written a volume of autobiography, IMMACULATE MISTAKE, and a biography of Cynthia Payne called AN ENGLISH MADAM. He lives in Shepherds Bush, London.
