Synopsis

The final instalment in Clive James’s collections of TV criticism in The Observer including pieces originally published between 1979 and 1982. Adding to an already unforgettable collection of comic brilliance, fans of Visions Before Midnight and The Crystal Bucket will not be disappointed.

Ten years and many Soap Operas ago our foremost television critic - Clive James - founded a column on the principles that humour, intelligence and style were the inalienable rights of his readers. Those who laughed and loved his two previous collections - Visions Before Midnight and The Crystal Bucket will not be disappointed by this, his third and final collection from his decade at The Observer. He is as funny as ever.

Books and Bookmen

Along with its two predecessors, it will stand as a once-only critical phenomenon: ten years' worth of high intelligence and wit

London Review of Books

The funniest writer in Britain

Sunday Times

Those who recall the standard set by his two previous volumes, Visions Before Midnight and The Crystal Bucket will not fail to be impressed by the undimmed vigour and panache of the writing, the vitality and freshness of the perception, the biting trenchancy of the humour. But they are bound, finally, to be heartened and encouraged by the enthusiasm for and commitment to the medium which has remained constant for a decade and which in itself provides some measure of the achievement of those years
