Editorial Reviews

Review

This book, easily the best on Larkin yet to appear, is a masterful analysis of the weirdly fatalistic interweaving of his life and his writing. A great biography of a great artistic genius. Utterly magnificent. --Roger Lewis, author of Anthony Burgess: A Life --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Martin Amis would come across much more meaningfully in the hands of a less unctuous biographer, and certainly he deserves one with a less convoluted, bloviated style. If you believe, as Bradford does, that Amis is the most influential writer of his time, then this book may be for you. If you would place Amis is a more modest part of the firmament, you'll grow tired of this biography quickly.
