North Face of Soho by Clive James

To coincide with the publication by Pan Macmillan on the 6th of October of North Face of Soho, the fourth volume his Unreliable Memoirs, Clive James (see the Clive James and Pete Atkin blogrolls on the right) will be doing the rounds of the media, discussing mainly, but, no doubt, not exclusively, the book and the period of his life that it covers.

One of the places he’ll be found is on BBC Radio 4’s Open Book(Sunday the 15th of October 16.00 and Thursday the 19th of October 16.00) where he will be in discussion with the programme’s regular presenter, Mariella Frostrup.

For anybody who has read and enjoyed, as I have, the first three volumes, Unreliable Memoirs, Falling Towards England and May Week Was in June, this latest one is a most welcome addition and one that has been long awaited.

It should, if anything, be more popular with the general reader than the previous volumes because it deals with the time when he became well-known public figure, first as the the Observer’s acerbic TV critic, and later as the fast-talking wise-cracking frontman of the various shows he wrote and presented for television companies over the last twenty years or so.

A short audio extract from North Face of Soho can be found here.
