• 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

  • Amis can be sharp and even brutal as well as funny and indiscreet...he has evidently written Memoirs with relish
