Reviews

[A] fabulously gifted, enviably well-read, generously inclusive, and always commonsensical writer -- John Banville * New York Review of Books *
One stupendous starburst of wild brilliance. -- Simon Schama
Aphoristic and acutely provocative: a crash course in civilization. -- J. M. Coetzee
This is a beautiful book. James proves himself not only to be in possession of a towering intellect, but a singular ability to communicate his passions. * Observer *
Witty, insightful and unashamedly erudite, the book is a superb miscellany of 20th-century cultural and political subjects. * The Sunday Times *
Over the past forty years James has been scribbling notes in the margins of the books he has read . . . and this is the result. Clever, contentious and funny. * Guardian *
An eclectic journey through the 20th century, as Clive James explores the careers of luminaries such as Charles de Gaulle and Charlie Chaplin. * Daily Express *
