  • Brilliant Creaturesby Clive James

    Pan Macmillan 2013; US$ 9.23

    ‘The brilliant creatures of the title live in a world of lost innocence and vast incomes; publishers, writers, media men and consultants, they belong to a charmed circle where everyone knows everybody else’s business and thinks it the most important thing in life. It’s all marvellously clever; Clive James doesn’t miss a trick. It’s funny too. Enjoy,... more...

  • Sentenced to Lifeby Clive James

    Pan Macmillan 2015; US$ 13.19

    In his insightful collection of poems Clive James looks back over an extraordinarily rich life with a clear-eyed and unflinching honesty.
