Reviews

'A fascinating and complex story, beautifully told with clarity, passion, and humour.'-David Crystal; 'By turns deeply edifying and hugely entertaining and unusual for succeeding at being both - a future classic!;-Damian Barr; 'Shot through with his nicely dry wit, this is a fascinating and important study . . . Yes, Polari might seem a camp relic, but it's a precious linguistic trace of generations for whom taking refuge in camp was a matter of survival.'-Patrick Gale
