Clive James, Novelist, Emphysema
« on: November 28, 2019, 09:10:18 AM »
       Clive James, a transplanted Australian whose wit and aphoristic style made him a fixture in Britain as a literary critic of unusually wide range, a longtime television writer for The Observer and a reliable comic presence on numerous television shows, notably “Clive James on Television,” died on Sunday in Cambridge, England. He was 80.

His literary agents confirmed the death in a statement posted on Twitter on Wednesday. In 2010, Mr. James learned he had leukemia, kidney failure and emphysema.   He smoked 70 cigarettes a day leading to emphysema.    Death triwheel below.
