'Clyne describes himself as a practising outlawyer whose career became exciting, lucrative and satisfying only after he was disbarred in 1959. he discusses this disembarrment in the same way that he discusses almost every aspect of his life - in a disarmingly frank and honest way.
Clyne has a real flair for telling a story and jumps with enormous ease from the sublime to the ridiculous and waltzes us through romantic interludes in Vienna to spine-chilling tales about his time in gaol.
Clyne's many adventures are all like a fantastic romp through life until you remember that his story is all fact and not fiction and it prompts you to ask as so many others before you have done, 'How does he get away with it?"'
