Clive James (1939—2019), author of the best-selling Cultural Amnesia and Poetry Notebook, was an Officer of the Order of Australia and a Commander of the Order of the British Empire. His writing appeared in the New York Times Book Review, The New Yorker, and The Atlantic.
"Clive James’s book-length poem The River in the Sky is superb, an
epic lament, written in late life, filled with exact and moving
observations about life and culture."
*Dwight Garner, New York Times*
