Reissue of Amis's classic novel, to tie-in with the paperback of Zachary Leader's acclaimed biography.


Kingsley Amis was born in south London in 1922 and was educated at the City of London School and St John's College, Oxford. After the publication of Lucky Jim in 1954, Kingsley Amis wrote over twenty novels, including The Alteration, winner of the John W. Campbell Memorial Award, The Old Devils, winner of the Booker Prize in 1986, and The Biographer's Moustache, which was to be his last book. He also wrote on politics, education, language, films, television, restaurants and drink. Kingsley Amis was awarded the CBE in 1981 and received a knighthood in 1990. He died in October 1995.


"Amis amazes at every turn" Mail on Sunday "A great storyteller, although he was much more than a storyteller" -- Keith Waterhouse "He was a genuine comic writer, probably the best after P. G. Wodehouse-He had a lasting influence and was a very good novelist" -- John Mortimer "In these explicit days, Mr Amis is the laureate of the unsayable, the literary it man" Sunday Telegraph
