"Wit gleams from most of the entries, in which observations about English and American manners, varieties of gayness, and the pretensions of culture, accompany merry anecdotes about films, television, society functions, and the unfailingly bizarre strangers whom Crisp attracts"
HAL JENSEN, 'Times Literary Supplement'
"As charming and witty as you would expect. A delight"
TIM HAIGH, 'Independent on Sunday'
"We need more 'sissies' like Quentin Crisp, people who describe the absurdities of modern life with lovely words and a dearth of sharp edges. There's never a dull moment in these diaries"
TOM HIBBERT, 'Mail on Sunday'
"His sentences enshrine a personality. They are as short, as apparently casual and as deftly applied as the stroke of an eyebrow pencil… A wonderful and infuriating and entertaining book"
NEIL BARTLETT, 'Observer'
"Quentin Crisp can lay claim to be one of the wittiest men alive … an endless source of diverting, penetrating and hilarious views on life and these delightful diaries … are the perfect anecdote to a fit of the blues. Read them and marvel"
WILLIAM RUSSELL, 'Glasgow Herald'
"A man born to sculpt aphorisms, Crisp trots them out as easily as most of us blink. They glitter through his writing, oases of charm"
ROSEMARY GORING, 'Scotland on Sunday'
"Quentin Crisp is an extraordinary figure, living his life fully according to his lights and making people happier than they might otherwise have been"
CLEMENT CRISP, 'Financial Times'
"A truly unique insight into American life. Marvellous stuff"
By Quentin Crisp
