It has some splendid moments" New Statesman "The funniest book I have ever reviewed" -- Christopher Caldwell The American Spectator "Thoroughly amusing" Washington Post "Horribly enjoyable...the chief feeling is shame at laughing quite so much" -- Blake Morrison Independent on Sunday "I had expected to dislike Kingsley Amis's Memoirs, but ended up thinking them the funniest book of the year" -- D J Taylor Independent
