How to Become a Virgin by Quentin Crisp

How to Become a Virgin by Quentin Crisp


In this account of his youth, and sequal to The Naked Civil Servant, Quentin Crisp describes the stresses and strains of homosexual life. Crisp wandered the world of London's bedsits and late-night cafes, encountering both hostility and tenderness. He faced a life of short-lived jobs and relationships with humour and intelligence.
