Reviews

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 *
