Waterstones Says

From reckoning with his famous father to his storied dominance of the British literary scene, Amis' magnificent autobiography chronicles the life and times of a true master of his craft.

One of the Guardian's 100 Best Books of the 21st Century

In this remarkable work of autobiography, the son of the great comic novelist Kingsley Amis explores his relationship with his father and writes about the various crises of Kingsley's life, including the final one of his death.

Amis also reflects on the life and legacy of his cousin, Lucy Partington, who disappeared without trace in 1973 and was exhumed twenty years later from the basement of Frederick West, one of Britain's most prolific serial murderers.
