I picked this book up for three reasons - I had read some of Clives work previously and enjoyed it, I have always loved his style and dry wit on TV, and I had lived for a time in Sydney, Australia. Unreliable Memoirs is an excellent illustration of Clives humour, and a bright insight into a Syndey that once was. Altogether funny, Clive builds up episodes and explodes them with a sardonic punchline. The general advice is to read this book alone - not because you can't suppress laughter in public, but you won't be able to suppress surprise! I am looking forward to completing the other two books in this trilogy.
