Kingsley Amis

SIR KINGSLEY AMIS CBE d1995. English novelist, poet, critic and teacher. He wrote more than 20 novels, six volumes of poetry, a memoir, various short stories, radio and television scripts, along with many works of social and literary criticism. His first novel "Lucky Jim" (1954) remains still perhaps his most famous, satirizing the high-brow academic set of an unnamed university, seen through the eyes of its protagonist (Jim Dixon) as he tries to make his way as a young lecturer of history. According to his biographer (Zachary Leader), Kingsley Amis was "the finest English comic novelist of the second half of the twentieth century." He died in London aged 73 on 22nd October 1995. In 2008, The Times ranked him thirteenth on their list of the 50 greatest British writers since 1945.
