From a genteel pre-war South London adolescence to the dreaming spires of Oxford, and on through the usual rites of passage to adulthood, another acerbic, outrageous, and socially nuanced Amis novel. Strongly autobiographical. "Funny, touching, well-constructed, sharply evocative of time and place and written with characteristic Amisian aplomb. It is a first class addition to his oeuvre." –Spectator
