Camp : the lie that tells the truth by Philip Core( Book )

5 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Camp style, in behaviour, clothing, artistic output or emotions, has never been properly explored or defined. Jean Cocteau, as camp a figure as Paris has ever produced, said in Vanity Fair in 1922, 'I am a lie that tells the truth.' This paradox is the basis of Philip Core's personal definitions of camp, seen from the inside. His savagely witty depictions of more than two centuries of camp find it embodied in personalities and places, objects and artefacts. He has written a who's who and a what's what of camp, a deceptively descriptive and factual lexicon, allowing the reader to build up a kaleidoscopic picture of camp through the ages. It is complemented with 150 photographs and a vivacious foreword by England's foremost authority on surrealism, eccentric behaviour and hats, jazz singer George Melly.--From publisher description

It is not until they meet again that they realize that even smashing times must come to an end!"--Container
