'Arriving in Cambridge on my first day as an undergraduate, I could see nothing except a cold white October mist. At the age of twenty-four I was a complete failure, with nothing to show for my life except a few poems nobody wanted to publish in book form.' Falling Towards England -- the second volume of Clive James's 'Unreliable Memoirs' -- was meant to be the last. Thankfully, that's not the case. In 'Unreliable Memoirs III', Clive details his time at Cambridge, including film reviewing, writing poetry, falling in love (often), and marrying (once) during May Week -- which was not only in June but also two weeks long ...'Nobody writes like Clive James; he has invented a style' Spectator 'He turns phrases, mixes together cleverness and clownishness, and achieves a fluency and a level of wit that make his pages truly shimmer ...May Week Was In June is vintage James' Financial Times
