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)
