Effervescent, energetic and eclectic, this is one of the late Twentieth Century's finest minds (and bellies) on show. In this compelling collection of essays Clive James focusses on Australian poetry; on television today; on the rise and fall of various icons; on the question of the culpability of the ordinary German in the holocaust; and there is a compellingly provocative and much-talked about piece on the death of Diana.
