Letters from Quentin Crisp, 1991-1999.
Summary
The letters, most of which were typewritten, and all of which include original envelopes, were written by Quentin Crisp to Robert Patrick between April 1991 to February 1999. After Crisp's death in November 1999, Patrick composed a fifteen page guide to the letters, included with this collection, in which he explains Crisp's references, identifies persons mentioned, fills in some biographical details about Crisp and about himself and his concurrent career, and offers commentary on Crisp's remarks. Crisp writes about current events, plays and films, about Patrick's career and his own, and frequently about issues of importance to gay men and lesbians.
