Clive James No Prima Donna

The "Hendon and Finchley Times" isn't too impressed with Clive James at present. They attempted to speak to the man ahead of a performance in nearby Edmonton and were directed to "a syndicated piece, written by Mr James' PR people". They quote: "Over the years, various adjectives have attached themselves to Clive like burrs to a woolly jumper: charming, intelligent, witty, wry, genial. I'm here to tell you, they're all true. During a coruscating hour in his company, I'm treated to a wondrous one-man command performance." And here I was, all this time, thinking that the adjective "coruscating" was only used in reviews of guitar-heavy rock albums.
