A brilliant and preposterously funny book (Guardian)

It has always made me laugh out loud . . . a flawless comic novel' (Helen Dunmore The Times)

About the Author:

Kingsley Amis (1922-1995) was born in London and educated at City of London School and St John's College, Oxford. At one time he was a university lecturer, and a jazz enthusiast. After the publication of Lucky Jim, now a modern classic, he wrote over twenty novels, including the Booker Prize-winning The Old Devils (1986). He also wrote ephemerally on politics, education, language, films and restaurants. Amis received a knighthood in 1990.
