How To Have A Life-style

How To Have A Life-style

(1975)
A non fiction book by

 
This book is an account of the philosophical views of Quentin Crisp (born Denis Charles Pratt, 25 December 1908 - 21 November 1999) was a controversial and flamboyant English writer and raconteur. From a conventional suburban background, Crisp grew up with effeminate tendencies, which he flaunted by parading the streets in make-up and painted nails, and working as a rent-boy. He then spent thirty years as a professional model for life-classes in art colleges. The interviews he gave about his unusual life attracted increasing public curiosity, and he was soon sought-after for his highly individual views on social manners and the cultivating of style. His one-man stage show was a long-running hit, both in England and America, and he also appeared in films and on TV. Crisp defied convention by criticizing both gay liberation and Diana, Princess of Wales.
