Third and final installment of Quentin Crisp’s autobiography to be published Nov. 21Entertainment News, Online Only, Section 4A Monday, October 16th, 2017
SAN DIEGO, Calif. – MB Books, LLC, (MB Books) today announced that the third and final installment of Quentin Crisp’s autobiography, The Last Word, will be published worldwide Nov. 21, 2017. The publication date will coincide with the eighteen-year anniversary of Crisp’s passing, which occurred on November 21. The Last Word will be available in hardcopy and as an e-book, exclusively on Amazon.
The Last Word was written by Crisp with the help of his best friend, Phillip Ward, who tape-recorded and later transcribed Quentin’s words between 1997-1999. Upon his death, Quentin left the rights and responsibility to publish The Last Word to Phillip, who later enlisted former Pink News features writer Laurence Watts to help edit the resulting manuscript.
Whereas The Naked Civil Servant made Crisp famous and How To Become A Virgin detailed that fame and his move to and life in New York, The Last Word was written by a man who knew the end was near. The Last Word is Crisp’s goodbye to the world, an opportunity for him to have the last word.
