Cultural Amnesia: Necessary Memories from History and the Arts

Cultural Amnesia: Necessary Memories from History and the Arts

Clive James


"I cannot be mindful whilst i have realized as a lot from whatever i have read―or laughed as a lot whereas doing it."―Jacob Weisberg, Slate

ultimately in paperback after six hardcover printings, this overseas bestseller is an encyclopedic A-Z masterpiece―the excellent creation to the very middle of Western humanism. Clive James rescues, or sometimes destroys, the careers of some of the maximum thinkers, humanists, musicians, artists, and philosophers of the 20 th century. hovering to Montaigne-like heights, Cultural Amnesia is strictly the booklet to burnish those thoughts of a Western civilization that James fears is sort of misplaced.
