Review:

'Required reading for anyone whose life was touched by Crisp in some way. Which, whether we care to admit or not probably means most of us' Time Out 'All in all...a delight. I read the accounts with delight and much regret - at having never met in person the man we seem so reluctant to forget' The Pink Paper 'His graciousness and dignity shine through' Mail on Sunday

From the Back Cover:

Paul Bailey has created a fascinating portrait of the unique, and uniquely amusing, Quentin Crisp, with contributions from friends, admirers and critics. His various careers - as a performer, artist's model, writer of a memorable autobiography and authority on style and etiquette - are examined with wit, affection and disinterested criticism. Designed to explore his life from a variety of angles, The Stately Homo is a tribute to one of the twentieth century's true English eccentrics.
