110:80 A Naked Civil Servant by Quentin Crisp
A friend recommend this to me as I was looking for an author whose name (first or last) began with Q for a challenge. It looked interesting so I picked it up not quite sure what I was in for but trusting that it would, at least, be an interesting read.
It was an amazing read. Witty, insightful, humorous at times, poignant, and unfortunately also a sad commentary on the human race as a whole in how we treat those who are different especially if they are true to themselves instead of hiding it away. No matter what tho, I walk away after reading it admiring Quentin for his honesty in how he lived his life.
