The Boy Hairdresser & Lord Cucumber - Two Novels

The Boy Hairdresser & Lord Cucumber - Two Novels $19.99

Joe Orton & Kenneth Halliwell

Published by Nick Hern Books

Two novels marking the beginning and the end of the seven-year-long writing partnership of Joe Orton and Kenneth Halliwell

Lord Cucumber is a camp pastiche of a Mills and Boon romance, and The Boy Hairdresser tells of the tortured relationship of two rootless young men

The striking difference in mood between the two novels, from light comedy to brooding tragedy, seems to mirror their changing relationship
