About Kingsley Amis

Kingsley Amis (1922 1995) was a popular and prolific British novelist, poet, and critic, widely regarded as one of the greatest satirical writers of the twentieth century. Born in suburban South London, the only child of a clerk in the office of the mustard-maker Colman s, he went to the City of London School on the Thames before winning an English scholarship to St. John s College, Oxford, where he began a lifelong friendship with fellow student Philip Larkin. Following service in the British Army s Royal Corps of Signals during World War II, he completed his degree and joined the faculty at the University College of Swansea in Wales. "Lucky Jim," his first novel, appeared in 1954 to great acclaim and won a Somerset Maugham Award. Amis spent a year as a visiting fellow in the creative writing department of Princeton University and in 1961 became a fellow at Peterhouse College, Cambridge, but resigned the position two years later, lamenting the incompatibility of writing and teaching ( I found myself fit for nothing much more exacting than playing the gramophone after three supervisions a day ). Ultimately he published twenty-four novels, including science fiction and a James Bond sequel- more than a dozen collections of poetry, short stories, and literary criticism- restaurant reviews and three books about drinking- political pamphlets and a memoir- and more. Amis received the Booker Prize for his novel "The Old Devils" in 1986 and was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 1990. He had three children, among them the novelist Martin Amis, with his first wife, Hilary Anne Bardwell, from whom he was divorced in 1965. After his second, eighteen-year marriage to the novelist Elizabeth Jane Howard ended in 1983, he lived in a London house with his first wife and her third husband. Michael Dirda is a longtime book columnist for "The Washington Post" and the author, most recently, of "Classics for Pleasure" and the 2012 Edgar Award winning "On Conan Doyle.""
