Comments & Further Information

This is a trade paperback edition.  The title was originally published in 2004 as a limited edition hardback by Tartarus Press.  Unread.

Please note:  the author is NOT Quentin Crisp who wrote The Naked Civil Servant.

SYNOPSIS:  “In these eight immaculately realised strange stories, Quentin S. Crisp delves deep into the decadence of contemporary life.

As Mark Samuels points out in his Foreword, Crisp’s fiction is ‘… too multi-layered, too individual, to be labelled. One can spot influences here and there, a dash of this and a sprinkling of that, but the end result is much greater than the sum of its parts.’

The stories are: The Mermaid; Far-Off Things; Cousin X; A Lake; The Two-Timer, The Tattooist; Ageless; Autumn Colours.”
