Quote of the Day (Clive James, on the Ghastly Barbara Cartland)

“Twin miracles of mascara, her eyes looked like the corpses of two small crows that had crashed into a chalk cliff.”—Australian man of letters Clive James (1939-2019), on a TV appearance by romance novelist Barbara Cartland (pictured), “Wedding of the Century,” in Clive James on Television: Classics From the Observer, 1972-1982 (2017)
