"As soon as I stepped out of my mother's womb...I realized that I had made a mistake, " Quentin Crisp declares, giving a small hint of the witty and wry approach he takes toward the life he describes with uninhibited exuberance in this classic autobiography, which is both a comic masterpiece and a unique testament to the resilience of the human spirit. Crisp not only came out as a gay man in 1931, when the slightest sign of homosexuality shocked public sensibilities, but he did so with grand and provocative flamboyance, determined to spread the message that homosexuality did not exclude him or anyone else from the human race. His hilarious descriptions of encounters with parents, friends, employers, soldiers and sailors, and the law reveal the strength and humor of an honest man, determined to face the world with the uncensored, unapologetic truth about himself.

Review: The Naked Civil Servant

用戶評語  - Joe - Goodreads

A valuable memoir, especially for queer readers. Crisp was the most public homosexual of a bygone age when gay men endured daily tauntings, semi-regular beatings, and the ever-present risk of jail ... 閱讀評論全文

Review: The Naked Civil Servant

用戶評語  - Nabil - Goodreads

Quentin Crisp was a dark wit, and a notable quotable, full of catchphrases expounded as aphorisms that are no longer (and perhaps never were) applicable to anyone's life; however, he is worth reading as a rare snapshot into the life of an out gay man in the 1930s in England. 閱讀評論全文

關於作者 (1997)

Quentin Crisp was born on December 25, 1908 and attended school in Derbyshire. Following an unsuccessful attempt to become an illustrator and a designer of book covers, Crisp tried freelance writing on a variety of subjects, including window dressing and the Ministry of Labour. Crisp's most popular book was his autobiography, The Naked Civil Servant, which deals openly with the subject of his homosexuality. The book ultimately became a television play that has been broadcast in England, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and the U.S. Other Crisp books include How to Have a Life-Style, Manners from Heaven, and The Wit and Wisdom of Quentin Crisp. He made his off-Broadway debut with An Evening with Quentin Crisp in 1978. He has also appeared in a variety of movies, including The Bride and Fatal Attraction, and in a video with the rock star, Sting.
