The crime of the century by Kingsley Amis( Book )

25 editions published between 1975 and 1993 in English and held by 1,066 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Serialized in a British newspaper in 1975, this edition of Amis's whodunit benefits from an introduction by the master satirist himself. The plot involves the murders of young women in London and the special committee set up to coordinate investigations with the police, when even Scotland Yard's most famous detectives fail to catch the killer. The professional sleuths, therefore, consult with an odd assortment of amateurs: Chris Dane, crime novelist; Benedict Royal, an intellectual rock star; Sir Neil Costello, QC; members of Parliament; and psychiatrists, including Marcus Varga, who's flakier than his patients. As the murders continue, so does Amis keep adding ingenious red herrings while playing fair by planting clues for readers sharp enough to spot them. The solution, however, will strike most mystery buffs as tops in the art of literary legerdemain. An alternate denouement, submitted by one of the newspaper's subscribers, closes the book and emphasizes just how foxy the author is

Everyday drinking : the distilled Kingsley Amis by Kingsley Amis( Book )

17 editions published between 1983 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 531 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A collection of hilarious and deeply informed writings about drink from one of the all-time authorities. Kingsley Amis was one of the great masters of comic prose, and no subject was dearer to him than the art and practice of imbibing. This new volume brings together the best of his three out-of-print works on the subject. Along with a series of well-tested recipes (including a cocktail called the Lucky Jim) the book includes Amis's musings on The Hangover, The Boozing Man's Diet, What to Drink with What, and (presumably as a matter of speculation) How Not to Get Drunk-all leavened with quizzes on the making and drinking of alcohol all over the world. Mixing practical know-how and hilarious opinionation, this is a cocktail of wry humor and distilled knowledge, served by one of our great gimlet wits.--From publisher description
