Glued To The Box
Glued To The Box is 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.
