Illustrated. From December 1966 until his murderin August 1967, Joe Orton kept a series of diaries that prove to be one of the most candid and unfettered accounts of that remarkable era. They chronicle his literary success. They chronicle his sexual escapades at the most unlikely places. They chronicle the breakdown of his sixteen-year ‘marriage’ to Kenneth Halliwell, a relationship that had transformed Orton from a provincial nobody to one of the most most talented comic playwrights since Oscar Wilde. And they chronicle the high-life and low-life of Britain during six months of supreme excitement in the sixties when everything seemed possible. pp. 304 illusts
