About this title


This is a collection of Ian Hamilton's critical writing, including pieces on the lives and work of Sylvia Plath, Evelyn and Auberon Waugh and Kingsley Amis, and assessments of poets such as Seamus Heaney, Roberts Frost, Robert Graves and Philip Larkin. Hamilton also journalism, magazines, key 20th-century novels, football, cricket and sex. His other books include "In Search of J.D. Salinger", "Writers in Hollywood", "Keepers of the Flame" and "Gazza Agonistes".


Perhaps best known for The Search of J.D. Salinger, a book that incurred the wrath of its subject and his lawyers, literary critic Ian Hamilton collects more than three dozen essays from three decades in this volume. Ranging from reviews of Portnoy's Complaint and Terry Southern's Candy to essays on Seamus Heaney, Robert Frost, and Philip Larkin, and even including some forays into the world of sport, Hamilton's essays are always intelligent and frequently humorous.
