Saddened to read that Clive James has said that he believes he's lost his battle with leukemia, it made me think of his rich, almost iconic voice.
Such a clever, witty and intelligent man. I vividly remember being transfixed by him. Laughing out loud before anyone LOLed.
I had a bit of an obsession with The Clive James show in high school, and loved him. I kept coming back for more.
I just had to find this clip of Margarita Pracatan performing on The Clive James show back in 1996. In fact, I watched this just a couple of months ago because I often think of Margarita Pracatan. I know. My mind is an unusual place.
From essays, poetry to reviews, the man has a wonderful way with words. I think that's why I was drawn to him.
Looking for some Clive James clever-ness? Here. Here. And here.
