Radio: The Death Of Quentin Crisp

The flamboyant and eccentric gay writer and raconteur died on 21 November, 1999. He was on a visit to England from his home in New York - a city that he loved. Hear from his biographer Tim Fountain, about the man who became a celebrity after his memoir The Naked Civil Servant became a bestseller.

A colleague was so excited to be interviewing Mr Crisp on his visit to England, then came the phone call....

Pretty good excuse for getting out of an unwanted interview, though.
