Elegant, provocative and hugely entertaining, Kingsley Amis's memoirs are filled with anecdotes, experiences and portraits of famous friends, family, acquaintances (and a few eminent foes). From his childhood days to Oxford and army life, his travels abroad and his years as a successful novelist, Memoirs offers extraordinary insights into a unique literary life.
A highly amusing read, and pretty much the only thing today that is capable of distracting me... It has some splendid moments
The funniest book I have ever reviewed
Horribly enjoyable...the chief feeling is shame at laughing quite so much
I had expected to dislike Kingsley Amis's Memoirs, but ended up thinking them the funniest book of the year
