Three of the sharpest, most brilliant and outrageously funny memoirs you will ever read.
In 'Unreliable Memoirs' we meet a very young Clive James. One dressed in shorts. His hilarious adventures growing up in post-war Sydney are deliciously recounted in this, the first volume of his memoirs. Next our hero sets sail for London, where he hopes to find Success without compromising his Ideals.
'Falling Towards England' tells how, having happily failed to land a suitable job, Clive moves into a little bed and breakfast in Swiss Cottage where he thoughtfully practises the Twist, anticipates the poetical masterpieces yet to be composed, and worries a little about his wardrobe.
'May Week In June' sees Clive at Cambridge University, where he enthusiastically involves himself in a wide range of pursuits (so long as they aren't on the syllabus and happen to be female). Then, during May Week - not only in June but also two weeks long - he marries . . . and the rest is history.
