Clive James's unforgettable poetry collection, which gained him comparison to Byron and status as a 'true poet' demonstrates his wide range of interests and knowledge while never compromising his trademark wit and humour. Other Passports explores his lyrical style of poetry, alongside parodies, imitations and lampoons.

In the media

Brilliant, amusing and technically dazzling poetry . . . Few poets since Bryon have handled ottava rima with such dexterity and confidence. Part of fun we derive from reading James come from his delighted awareness of the risks he is running and the skill and cleverness with which he is coping with the challenge
The Weekend Australian
His Babu version of The Wasteland is in wonderfully bad taste . . . His opening piece, “The Book of My Enemy Has Been Remaindered”, is even funnier than the title promises . . . “Johnny Weissmuller Dead in Acapulco” is both comic and touching
Sunday Telegraph
Other Passports is a delight
