Clive James, author and television personality, says that his latest autobiographical volume is simply a further “instalment in a serial confession of how I learned to do the right thing only by doing all the wrong things first.”
James admits in North of Soho, that he is getting better at learning from his mistakes. But, he says, “Without those big mistakes I would never have learned anything in the first place. The graph of your increasing profit from your own errors is the only authentic measure of progress.”
