Kingsley Amis
First edition. Crown 8vo. Pp. 255, [1 (blank)]. Turquoise cloth boards, lettered in gilt to spine; apricot top-stain. Jacket design by George Coral (priced 22s.6d. net to front flap).
Telegraph author appraisal by Allan Massie upon Amis's passing, laid-in. Dustwrapper a tad edgeworn, else Fine.
A Prize Shit, sorry, a TV host, whose stock-in-trade is push-button sincerity, gets his come-uppance when his relentless pursuit of fame, money and sex leads him to fall in love with his prey and mend his ways. Author's seventh novel, dedicated to his publisher, Tom Maschler, and hailed as Amis's funniest since Lucky Jim. "Wonderfully readable... brings all the earlier works into focus" –Anthony Burgess
