EVERYDAY DRINKING THE DISTILLED KINGSLEY AMIS PDF

Doctors assure us that wherever you find an elderly, pompous old writer long past his prime you will find a bottle of scotch nearby. If only that were the case. Hilly hid mine after I fell up the stairs when I came home from the Garrick yesterday, and I've had to make do with a bottle of Blue Nun I found in the maid's parlour. Not that I am an alcoholic. Dipsomaniacs are a breed of the lower orders you meet on street corners: people like myself are bon viveurs who happen to like a drink.

He died in at the age of A reminder of how good all of Amis's writing was about being what he called a "drink-man": smart, no-nonsense and, above all else, charming Kingsley Amis falls into that category -- a great comic wit, Amis' writings both fiction and non about alcohol are among the very best.
