Summary
"Kingsley Amis always claimed that his fiction was not based on his life, and he worked hard and quite successfully at obscuring the autobiographical threads that ran through his novels. But they exist, and Richard Bradford traces the channels between Amis's experiences, his states of mind and his fictionalized versions of both. Bradford's biography shows that it is impossible to offer a comprehensive picture of Amis the man - as husband, philanderer, friend, father, jester, son, boozer, agnostic, pseudo-socialist and club-land Tory - without also considering how each dimension of his life tested and extended his literary skills."--Jacket
