In a distinguished career, Clive Sinclair (1948-2018) was an acclaimed novelist, short-story writer, and literary editor of the Jewish Chronicle. Focussing in his early books on Jewish identity and diaspora, in Sinclair's later works such as Meet the Wife, True Tales of the Wild West, and Death in Texas he established a reputation as arguably Britain's leading writer on the American West.

Bryan Cheyette, Professor of Literature at the University of Reading and the foremost scholar of Clive Sinclair's work, joined the American Literature Research Seminar to discuss and celebrate Sinclair's writing.
