9780006387176: Resident Alien; The New York Diaries

The great majority of this absorbing monologue consists of Crisp's own words... wisely Fountain doesn't attempt any trudge through the life story... Instead, Crisp treats us to his views on television, oral sex, the nature of style and the secret of happiness...-Daily Telegraph

About the Author:

Tim Fountain, a former Literary Manger of the Bush Theatre, has written for theatre, film and television, most notably Resident Alien, a one-man show about Quentin Crisp.

From AudioFile:

Flamboyant, in-your-face gay, British expatriate Quentin Crisp is best known for his Naked Civil Servant. Here he applies his catty wit to his life in America. Crisp fans will not mind the monotonous, feeble, fuddy-duddy reading. Far from it. But others may prefer to consult the printed page, where the urbane delights of his observations are not muted by his aged, labored voice. Y.R. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
