An interview with Clive James

Last weekend, Liz Hydesmith caught this delightful interview on CBC’s Sunday Edition between Clive James and Michael Enright.

Clive was born in the Sydney (Australia) suburb of Kogarah, before moving to England in 1962. He has authored more than 30 books, and once wrote of his own writing, “All I can do is turn a phrase until it catches the light.”

For four years, Clive has lived with leukemia and emphysema. It’s a battle he has publicly stated he’s losing, and the end is coming.

This is definitely a podcast worth listening to.
