About Between Us Girls

Joe Orton

1933-1967

Commemorating the fiftieth anniversary since Orton's murder

* * * * *

'Well, I certainly hope this diary never falls into anyone else's hands - wouldn't it be embarrassing for an unknown person to read a girl's most intimate thoughts?'

It's a hard life being a starlet, but Susan Hope is determined to make it. With an innocence untouched by events, she graduates from Soho strip clubs - and the white slave trade - to Hollywood fame, and of course she confides it all to her diary. Between Us Girls is a revealing early novel by a writer whose controversial works reflect his often scandalous life: essential reading.

 

'Brilliant comic writing'

John Mortimer 

Author(s)
 

Joe Orton

Joe Orton was born on a housing estate in Leicester in 1933. He joined RADA in 1951, where he met his mentor and lover Kenneth Halliwell. Living on the dole (and briefly in prison, for defacing library books) the two collaborated on novels, though Orton's solo writing brought him more fame. During his short life he rose to fame as one of England's most provocative young dramatists and epitomised London in the swinging 1960s. His openly gay lifestyle has turned him into an iconic figure. He was murdered by Halliwell in 1967.
