The Second Part of The Clive James Autobiographies,
By A Customer
This review is from: Falling Towards England : Unreliable Memoirs II (Paperback)
Clive James' Falling Towards England covers his life from leaving Australia in the late 1950's through his university years in London. An absorbing read, it covers James's inability to hold down a job, a relationship, and his ability to hold down an awful lot of alcohol. Written in a style that occasionally grates with its use of quotes from authors you may or may of never heard of, James seems to want the reader to see just how intelligent he is, having been to Cambridge on a postgraduate basis. Nonetheless, a solid read, that will have you chuckling away like I did most of the time.
