"Even As We Speak" by Clive James. [review - radio script]
MetadataShow full item record
"Even As We Speak" is Clive James’s sixth collection of essays, and covers the broad range of cultural, historical and literary criticism we have come to expect. Reading James’s essays is rather like conversing with an old friend. Often what he says is riveting and eloquent, at other times it’s a bit tedious or facetious, and sometimes you wish he’d stop carrying on about a particular obsession you don’t share. But overall, it’s worth while spending time with him, and interesting to hear his views on almost anything.
