Remembering Clive James: 'Have You Got a Biro I Can Borrow?'

Remembering Clive James: 'Have You Got a Biro I Can Borrow?'

Posted on 28th Nov, 2019 by Mark Skinner

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. An Australian at the heart of British cultural life for nearly fifty years, we mark his sad passing with one of his finest poems - originally shared in 2016 - 'Have You Got a Biro I Can Borrow?,' which is included in James's Collected Poems 1958-2015.
