The Russian Girl

First edition of Kingsley Amis's The Russian Girl

Kingsley Amis
First edition. Pp. [vi], 296. Black cloth boards, lettered in gilt to spine; turquoise endpapers. Jacket illustration by Jean-Paul Tibbles.
Bruising to lower edges, else very good in a very good dustwrapper.
A London professor of Slavonic studies jeopardizes his marriage and career when he falls in love with a Russian poet. A corrosively funny academic satire seasoned with ample doses of the battle of the sexes – a territory Amis made his own since the publication of Lucky Jim in 1954.
Awarded the CBE in 1981 and knighted in 1990 for his services to literature, he went on to win the 1986 Booker Prize for Fiction for The Old Devils. "Genuinely entertaining, and corrosively funny... Amis's work is the result of beautifully organized and polished craftsmanship." The New York Review of Books
