Aside from the comic novels that Amis made his name with, he wrote poetry, articles about drink (a subject with which he was intimately acquainted), a study of sci-fi and even a James Bond sequel. Like a lot of readers, I started with "Lucky Jim," his classic comic novel, and have struggled to find others that have the same pop and fizz ("Take a Girl Like You" comes close). As he aged, he became crankier and his views and style curdled. I'd say he was something of a bigot, but he expressed contempt for almost everybody. This is a decent, curious novel about the 60s and a conductor.
