‘Do not read this book in public. You will risk severe internal injuries from trying to suppress your laughter. What’s worse, you can’t put it down once started. Its addictive powers stun all normal, decent resistance within seconds. Not to be missed.’ Sunday Times ‘All that really needs to be said to recommend Unreliable Memoirs is that he writes exactly as he talks, which is all his millions of fans could wish.’ Valerie Grove, Evening Standard ‘Enormously funny . . . well up to best James standard. Buy it.’ Cosmopolitan ‘Of James’s jokes it is hard to find anything adequate to say. They are so funny that you had better not read the book on a train, unless you are unselfconscious about shrieking and snorting in public. They are vivid, cumulative and full of surprises.’ Observer ‘His public’s fun will consist of picturing their favourite wit and pundit, reduced in imagination to short-trouser size, wrestling with snakes and aunties and mutual-masturbators in the bush-bordering suburbs of post-war Sydney. These fancies are the more delicious for being called up in the familiar two-fisted prose. The old boy may be forty, but he times a punch-line disgustingly well.’ Russell Davies, Listener
