Lovereading view...

Essentially a chronicle of life in twenty-first century Britain, A Point of View is informed and informative, thoughtful and thought-provoking but above all, entertaining. In fact, in short, it's a damn good read. Clive James was one of the favourite presenters of Radio 4's Point of View and now, for the first time, his original pieces, sixty in total and all-new postscripts are collected together in one volume. Read along with Clive James as he reflects on everything from wheelie bins to plastic surgery, Elizabeth Hurley to the Olympics, 24 to Damien Hirst, Harry Potter to giving up smoking, car parks to Chinese elections, Britain's Got Talent to the expenses scandal and plenty more besides.
