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.

The book contains many complete lyrics and is embellished with numerous photographs, including images of original lyric manuscripts. Stephen Fry has contributed a typically brilliant foreword.

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