Loose Canon: The Extraordinary Songs of Clive James and Pete Atkin

At last, the book we didn't even realise we were waiting for. Author Ian Shircore has created this splendid tribute to the canon and its creators, filled with observation and anecdote, and reinforced with background material from both Pete and Clive. This is no scholarly analysis; instead it skips lightly through the songs' structure and content, and intrigues the reader with whimsical diversions into related fields of art, literature and (especially) popular music. You'll find yourself discovering far more than the mood in the studio during the Mythical America sessions, or the location of that Faded Mansion, as Shircore whirls you off on a sleighride past such diverse names as The Mamas & the Papas, George Gershwin, Andrew Marvell, Al Stewart, the Beach Boys and Randy Newman.

The book contains many complete lyrics and is embellished with numerous
photographs, including images of some original lyric manuscripts from Clive.

Stephen Fry has contributed a typically brilliant foreword.
And, for phoniacs, there's even one of these: 

Loose Canon (ISBN 1 910 45323 4) by Ian Shircore was published on October 13th 2016 by Red Door and is available in hardback and e-book formats from Amazon.
