Listen to our fascinating interview with Clive James on the Audible.co.uk Podcast.
© Clive James; (P) Macmillan Publishers Ltd
"Clive James is a true poet. Line after line of his has a characteristic personal tone, a kind of end-stopped singingness which is almost independent of what it says." (Peter Porter, London Review of Books)
"Packed with personality and wit, the poems are all the better thanks to James' distinctive delivery. There are plenty of thought-provoking verses here too."(Independent)
"If Clive James didn't sound like the cat that swallowed the canary I probably wouldn't bother listening to his poetry, which is witty, clever and conceited -like it's author - and needs a voice to match. I'm not knocking him - I was hooked from the first poem."(The Guardian)

"A bit of fun"
but not worth the listen if you are looking for serious humour or comment.
