London : Victor Gollancz, 1963. First edition. Tubby Roger St. John Micheldene pursues the wife of a Danish philologist through American academe – “Kingsley Amis is, indeed, very good at destroying other people’s snobberies and promoting his own. One Fat Englishman is a better, funnier novel than anything Amis has done since Lucky Jim” (Daily Herald, 14th November 1963).
AMIS, Kingsley (Sir Kingsley William), 1922-1995 : I WANT IT NOW.
London : Jonathan Cape, (1968). First edition. Amis takes precise aim at the idle and very rich, with some body-blows too at the new breed of television personalities – “What I like most about him, however, is his ability to pick off a character with a single sentence rather like a sniper wiping out an enemy with a single bullet” (Michael Billington in the Birmingham Daily Post, 14th December 1968).
AMIS, Kingsley (Sir Kingsley William), 1922-1995 : THE RIVERSIDE VILLAS MURDER.

AMIS, Kingsley (Sir Kingsley William), 1922-1995 : THE OLD DEVILS.
London : Hutchinson, (1986). First edition. His Booker Prize winning novel – people with a past decline into old age – “the most outrageously funny Amis novel for many years as well as the most overtly serious” – “It stands comparison with any English novel of the century” (Martin Amis).
