James, The Remake.

James, Clive. The Remake. London, Jonathan Cape, 1987. 22 cm x 32 cm. 223 pages. Original Hardcover with illustrated dustjacket in protective Mylar. Excellent condition with only very minor signs of external wear.

Joel Court has problems. He's lost his wife, his mistress, quite possibly his career as an astronomical wizard, and has ended up living with Chance Jenolan, to whom success is a way of life, and whose Barbican fortress is protected by a maze that would shame the Minotaur. To make matters worse, there is the Mole. Her heavenly body outshines all the celestial manifestations Joel has ever seen. Pretty soon, he will not be able to bear having her out of his sights . . .

'The Remake is a consideration of the artistic and the media-star lifestyle, full of brilliant observation.' London Evening Standard Magazine 'As sharp as a tack and as clever as eleven wagonloads of monkeys.' Guardian
'The reader is kept busy catching the glancing reflections, fitting together bits of puzzle and enjoying jokes. There is much that cries out to be quoted. Clive James's latest book is funny, serious, challenging, annoying, iconoclastic, elitist, erudite and erotic.' Adelaide Advertiser
'The Remake truly floored me. Very few books have forced me to compare form and content as powerfully as this novel and I use the word novel with caution. Dialogue, description, plot and situation, Clive James has mastered them all. Eloquent and erudite, he uses words with such ease, grace and effectiveness that levels of language and meaning are grasped in gestalt; a phrase can be a word.' Jerusalem Post (Amazon)
