Am sitting at home watching Andrew Denton’s Elders – he’s interviewing my all-time crush, Clive James.
Writer, thinker, reviewer, humanist, poet, essayist, all-round Renaissance man. He’s seventy years old and smart is so sexy.
“I do the secret thing that writers do: I do nothing … Because it might happen tomorrow.”
“The idea of being dead doesn’t bother me – just glad to have gotten this far!”
Read Unreliable Memoires … it’s one of the funniest things you’ll ever pick up … I used to read his work on the train and hurt myself trying not to laugh, inevitably snorting loudly and scaring other people in the train carriage. http://www.clivejames.com/
