I didn't grow up with Clive James. I was vaguely aware of him from the telly, but nothing more than that. And his life has not been that exciting - childhood in Australia before moving to England. Not, on the face of it, much cause for me to read this book (a collection of his assorted volumes of "unreliable memoirs")
But these memories are wonderful, and the telling even more so. Funny, touching, heartfelt and, more than anything, hugely readable and entertaining. Not a demanding book, but a very enjoyable one. Really, really good; highly recommended.
