Always Unreliable Summary

Always Unreliable: Memoirs by Clive James

Always Unreliable is the collected first three volumes of Clive James's eloquently witty autobiographies, Unreliable Memoirs, Falling Towards England and May Week Was in June.

In Unreliable Memoirs we meet the young Clive James - dressed in shorts and growing up in post-war Sydney. With Falling Towards England, we find Clive living in a Swiss Cottage B&B, where he practises the Twist, anticipates poetical masterpieces he's yet to compose, and worries about his wardrobe. Finally, May Week Was In June sees Clive at Cambridge University, where he enthusiastically involves himself in college life (generally female lives) until May Week - not only in June but also a fortnight long - when he gets married.

The rest, of course, is history . . .

You had better not read the book on a train, unless you are unselfconscious about shrieking and snorting in public . . . Vivid, cumulative and full of surprises * Observer *
You can't put it down . . . Not to be missed * Sunday Times *
