9780140024173: One Fat Englishman

Roger Micheldene is full of gluttony, sloth and lust, bounding with anger and affronted by everything on the American scene. He is an English gentleman who fails to see how his presence might adversely affect Anglo-American relations.

Review:

'Few have been as perceptive or funny about bad behaviour as Amis' ( Daily Telegraph)

About the Author:

Kingsley Amis's (1922-95) works take a humorous yet highly critical look at British society, especially in the period following the end of World War II. Born in London, Amis explored his disillusionment in novels such as That Uncertain Feeling (1955). His other works include The Green Man (1970), Stanley and the Women (1984), and The Old Devils (1986), which won the Booker Prize. Amis also wrote poetry, criticism, and short stories.
