This review is from: Low Life: One Middle-Aged Man in Search of the Point (Hardcover)
Good Intent is the title of one of my favorite Low Life columns and I think it very suitably describes Mr Clarke's struggle to lead a heroic (or at least respectable) life all the while trying to keep at bay his inner demons.
Exceptionally clever, witty, and insightful I've enjoyed his writing for years. I don't understand quite all the references (I am from American southwest) yet I often find myself laughing aloud at his latest every Thursday.
Was disappointed to find Good Intent and Sea Weed (another classic detailing his struggle where one can almost envision an angel and a devil alternately speaking to him) lacking, and would have preferred the date for each article but that did not diminish the collection.
