Leonie Orton, sister of controversial playwright Joe Orton, discusses her memoir with Charles Casillo.
Charles Casillo has spent years exploring his interests and obsessions such as tragic figures, exceptionally talented individuals, sex, dive bars, eccentrics, Marilyn Monroe and antidotes for insomnia, loneliness and insecurity. He has written about these and other subjects in his books The Marilyn Diaries, Outlaw: The Lives and Careers of John Rechy, The Fame Game, and Boys, Lost & Found. His movies are Let Me Die Quietly and Fetish.
On the 50th anniversary of his first novel "City of Night," John Rechy talks to Charles Casillo about its publication and its impact.
