The problem with Murphy's book is that it could have been written by any one of a dozen journalists that occasionally came close to the great man. Duncan Hamilton's book 'Provided You Don't Kiss Me' is a giant of a read compared to this. Also - and this is very important for Clough fans - Hamilton describes Clough's alcoholism, whereas Murphy avoids it so as not to upset 'the family'. Murphy should be more honest in his writing.
