First edition, first impression of this collection of essays by Kingsley Amis including “literary criticism, of writers as diverse and Hans Christian Andersen and Dylan Thomas and novels from Sorrell and Son to Portnoy’s Complaint; articles on such topics as horror films, the use of language, the National Eisteddfod of Wales and fictional detectives; autobiographical fragments and such confessions as why he wrote the James Bond novel Colonel Sun and why he left the Left; a ‘pique-piece’ on the ‘sixties and a serious meditation on the nature of Christ” (jacket blurb).

Octavo. Original blue boards, titles to spine gilt. With the dust jacket. An excellent copy in the rubbed jacket.
