Author, critic, commentator, poet, lyricist, television personality, raconteur: the ridiculously multi-talented Clive James was all these things and more. His death on Sunday 24 November 2019 left behind a world all the poorer for the loss of his erudition, wisdom, razor-sharp wit and lyrical dexterity.
