Product description

Review

"Endlessly entertaining... Good, rollicking stuff, and a delight to read... Sir Kingsley Amis is surely one of the funniest men alive" (Sunday Telegraph)

"Horribly enjoyable... The chief feeling is shame at laughing quite so much" (Independent on Sunday)

"Kingsley Amis's funniest book since Lucky Jim. It's humour is heart-warmingly malicious" (Sunday Times)

"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)

"Amis can be sharp and even brutal as well as funny and indiscreet...he has evidently written Memoirs with relish" (Sunday Telegraph)

Synopsis

Elegant, provocative and hugely entertaining, Kingsley Amis's memoirs are filled with anecdotes, experiences and portraits of famous friends, family, acquaintances (and a few eminent foes). From his childhood days to Oxford and army life, his travels abroad and his years as a successful novelist, "Memoirs" offers extraordinary insights into a unique literary life.
