At the opening of this book-length poem, Clive James is in ill health but high spirits. Although his body traps him in his Cambridge house, his mind is free to roam. The River in the Sky takes us on a grand tour of ‘the fragile treasures of his life’.
Animated by powerful recollections, James presents a flowing stream of vivid images. He moves from emotionally resonant personal moments to encounters with all kinds of culture, and he shares his passions with enormous generosity.
‘I have longed to be a member of Slightly Foxed . . .’
N. Veitch, Ontario, Canada
‘I have longed to be a member of Slightly Foxed but have always been held back by the poor exchange rate of the Canadian Dollar. But, having listened to the podcast episodes repeatedly whenever I am in need of a kitchen table book talk (probably too many times to admit, though I have decided to stop when I know them off by heart) I felt I needed to take the plunge. Thank you again.’
