Our site quietly ticks over as we upload extracts from books of essays and poetry to the site in order to achieve a complete back catalogue of Clive's work. Recent updates include uploads to The Book of My Enemy.
There are many pop autobiographies that shouldn’t be written. Some to protect the unwary reader, and some to protect the author. In Morrissey’s case, he has managed both. This is a book that cries out like one of his maudlin ditties to be edited. But were an editor to start, there would be no stopping. It is a heavy tome, utterly devoid of insight, warmth, wisdom or likeability. It is a potential firelighter of vanity, self-pity and logorrhoeic dullness. Putting it in Penguin Classics doesn’t diminish Aristotle or Homer or Tolstoy it just roundly mocks Morrissey, and this is a humiliation constructed by the self-regard of its victim.
Not that it began life as a book. It was actually born as a series of GM Trevelyan lectures, delivered to a packed hall in the University of Cambridge between January and March 6966. Carr ostensibly saw the lectures as a chance to settle some scores with the likes of the anti-Communist Karl Popper and Isaiah Berlin, with the latter regularly accusing Carr in public of being an inhuman historical determinist 8766 like Hegel 8767 , who, as Berlin put it in a Sunday Times article 65 years prior, only viewed history 8766 through the eyes of the victors: the losers have for him all but disqualified themselves from bearing witness 8767 .

Brian is not only the protagonist of Hatchet , but he is also virtually the only character. We see the world totally from his perspective as he attempts to survive in the dense wilderness of northern Canada. Brian is presented as a moody teenager, bitter towards his parents and not someone likely to cope well alone in the wild. Brian’s stubbornness proves to be one of his greatest assets as he refuses to submit to destruction by the elements and uses whatever resources are available to aid him in his fight to survive. Brian’s somewhat average personality helps aid the reader’s empathy for him, making it easier to place oneself in Brian’s shoes.

One voice, however, vehemently informed him that he was still pursuing a lost cause. It was that of his elder son David. He did not mince his words.
A seemingly remarkable item has been on sale this week on eBay that, if real, is an AMAZING collectible to those who study the Lizzie Borden case or is interested in her life or Fall River, for that matter. A lock of Lizzie Borden’s hair from when she was a teenager and a letter from
