Amis can be sharp and even brutal as well as funny and indiscreet...he has evidently written Memoirs with relish * Sunday Telegraph * He is nasty about people that have amply deserved it one way or the other; he deflates pretension; he exposes doublethink...he also excels in hailing poets and truepennies * Guardian * Kingsley Amis's funniest book since Lucky Jim. It's humour is heart-warmingly malicious * Sunday Times * Horribly enjoyable... The chief feeling is shame at laughing quite so much * Independent on Sunday * Endlessly entertaining... Good, rollicking stuff, and a delight to read... Sir Kingsley Amis is surely one of the funniest men alive * Sunday Telegraph *
Kingsley Amis was born in south London in 1922 and was educated at the City of London School and St John's College, Oxford. After the publication of Lucky Jim in 1954, Kingsley Amis wrote over twenty novels, including The Alteration, winner of the John W. Campbell Memorial Award, The Old Devils, winner of the Booker Prize in 1986, and The Biographer's Moustache, which was to be his last book. He also wrote on politics, education, language, films, television, restaurants and drink. Kingsley Amis was awarded the CBE in 1981 and received a knighthood in 1990. He died in October 1995.
