Working closely with friends such as Emily Rodda and discovering other wonderful writers such as Markus Zusak, Michael Gerard Bauer, David Cornish and many others have made the past 19 and a half years deeply rewarding. Special and lasting thanks go to Omnibus co-workers Celia Jellett and Patricia Howes.
Clive James new literary criticism Latest Readings is to be published in August by Yale University Press in hardback ISBN 9780300213195, and is available from Footprint Books at $32.95.
Diagnosed with Leukaemia in 2010, this is a look at his favourite books and is also a glimpse into himself, his musings on literature, his children and how he greets death.
Footprint’s David Ludowyk writes ‘Clive James’ love of the written word is evident on every page. His witty analyses of books he had read previously and new ones by Patrick O’Brien given to him by his eldest daughter, has inspired me to read all twenty of his books as James did, and then revisit Conrad and Hemingway.’
