Reprint. Originally published: 2001. Contents: Unreliable memoirs. Originally published: London: Jonathan Cape, 1980 - Falling towards England. Originally published: London: Jonathan Cape, 1985 - May week was in June. Originally published: London: Jonathan Cape, 1990.

All three volume of Clive James's sharp and funny autiobiography where first we meet the young Clive James - dressed in shorts and growing up in post-war Sydney.

With "Falling Towards England", we find Clive living in a Swiss Cottage B&B, where he practises the Twist, anticipates poetical masterpieces he's yet to compose, and worries about his wardrobe.

Finally "May Week was in June" sees Clive at Cambridge University, where he enthusiastically involves himself in college life (generally female lives) until May week - not only in June but also a fortnight long - when he gets married.

The rest is history, or awaiting a fourth volume of memoirs.
