In "Looking Back" Clive Scott tells the story of his life. We see a snapshot of an upper class existence in pre-war Malaya, where Scott's father was a well-respected Lieutenant and bandleader. When the war comes and Penang is invaded, the family escape and make their way to Singapore. Eventually, when victory is declared, they are repatriated to England but they fail to fit into their former lives and they return to Malaya. Clive goes his own way, first as a travelling salesman, then as a sailor on a ship. His pace is hectic as he weaves his way through job changes, different countries and culminating with the accidental discovery of his musical talents, with which he rises to some prominence in Norway. A great story, vividly told and very true to life. Clive Scott cannot help but catch the mood in everything he relates.
