Cleaver

Why would a man who has it all suddenly turn his back on the world at the height of his power? A celebrated journalist, broadcaster, and documentary filmmaker, Harold Cleaver has just trounced the president in a damning television interview. But balancing Cleaver's success is the unbearable scrutiny of his elder son's equally damning roman à clef, Under His Shadow. Overweight and overwrought, Cleaver abruptly abandons his home, his wife, his mistresses, and, above all, television, the glowing box that brought him identity and power. He retreats high into the mountains to evade the numbing.

  • "This is the story of London journalist Harold Cleaver, who abruptly walks away from his life to hide in the mountains of the South Tyrol. Overweight and overwrought, Cleaver abandons home, partner, mistresses and, above all, television - the instrument that brought him identity and power. He flies to Milan and heads deep into the South Tyrol. His quest: to climb above the "noise line", to get beyond the interminable clamour of the public voice, of which he himself was such a master. Weeks later, snowed in at 5000 feet, harangued by voices from the past and humiliated by his inability to understand the Tyrolese peasants he relies on for food and whisky, Cleaver discovers that there is nowhere so noisy and dangerous as the solitary mind."@en

  • "Overweight and overwrought, London's most successful journalist abandons home, partner, mistresses and above all television, the instrument that brought him identity and power. His quest: to climb above "the noise line," to get beyond the e-mail and the mobile phone and the clamour of the public voice of which he himself was such a master. Weeks later, snowed in at five thousand feet, harangued by voices from the past and humiliated by his inability to understand the peasants he relies on for food and whisky, Cleaver discovers that there is nowhere so noisy and so dangerous as the solitary mind."
