Reviews

"Zachary Leader ... did his work very well, combining diligent scholarship with an attractively unflinching response to 'old devilry'... The Life of Kingsley Amis is very long, very thorough and very straight-talking." --Andrew Motion, The Guardian
"The overriding impression left by Zachary Leader's marvelous new biography is that of a comic talent best enjoyed in aphoristic vein, or when seeking to annoy, and of a curmudgeon who could be both endearing and appalling... It's a pleasure to read, and the accumulation of detail gives a real sense of a life being led." --Jeremy Lewis, The Independent
"Zachary Leader's The Life of Kingsley Amis is a better biography than many bigger writers have had: detailed, sympathetic, unsparing without being unkind." --Adam Gopnik, The New Yorker
