Product description

Review

You can't put it down once started. Its addictive powers stun all normal, decent resistance within seconds. Not to be missed * Sunday Times * All that really needs to be said to recommend Unreliable Memoirs is that James writes exactly as he talks, which is all his millions of fans could wish * Evening Standard * James cannot find it within himself to write a dull paragraph * The Times * Very, very few of us have the gift of articulacy that was bestowed on Clive James * Independent * Of James's jokes it is hard to find anything adequate to say. They are so funny that you had better not read the book on a train, unless you are unselfconscious about shrieking and snorting in public. They are vivid, cumulative and full of surprises * Observer * Do not read this book in public. You will risk severe internal injuries from trying to suppress your laughter. What's worse, you can't put it down once started. Its addictive powers stun all normal decent resistance within seconds. Not to be missed * Sunday Times * Unreliable Memoirs . . . is his prose masterpiece, and an example of English comic writing that should be taught to schoolchildren alongside the works of Evelyn Waugh and PG Wodehouse. -- Peter Bradshaw * Guardian * One of the funniest - and, at times, most moving - books in the language * Sunday Times *
