Product description

All three volume of Clive James's sharp and funny autiobiography where first we meet the young Clive James - dressed in shorts and growing up in post-war Sydney. With "Falling Towards England", we find Clive living in a Swiss Cottage B&B, where he practises the Twist, anticipates poetical masterpieces he's yet to compose, and worries about his wardrobe. Finally "May Week was in June" sees Clive at Cambridge University, where he enthusiastically involves himself in college life (generally female lives) until May week - not only in June but also a fortnight long - when he gets married. The rest is history, or awaiting a fourth volume of memoirs.

By Julie Unicomb 26 Aug 2014 3

Like previous reviewers, I didn't find this book particularly funny. The funniest bit was James's description of his go-karting days in Kogarah NSW and the destruction of the neighbours flower bed - it's laugh out loud funny, but the rest is pretty mundane. I find Clive uses too many words in his descriptions, often to the point of mind numbing boredom....one of the few books I have been unable to finish.
