Synopsis: Written in one of the few unmistakenly literary voices of our time, Amis' Memoirs have already created a furor in England. Amis writes without inhibition about Roald Dahl, Anthony Burgess, Francis Bacon, Malcolm Muggeridge, and many others. Amis' memiors are rich, hilarious, and wicked--written with tremendous verve about Oxford, the literary life, and Mrs, Thatcher--and give us a completely unvarnished portrait of him.
About the Author: 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.
