"This is a fascinating critical study of the life, work and milieu of one of Britain's best known and most popular novelists."--BOOK JACKET. "Starting with a biographical overview of the influences on the developing writer while at home, at school, at Oxford, and at war, Dale Salwak goes on to offer the general reader a lively interpretation of all of Amis's novels, from Lucky Jim (1954) through to The Folks That Live on the Hill (1990), set against the ever-changing backdrop of the twentieth century."--BOOK JACKET. "Dale Salwak makes extensive use of the major Amis archives, and draws on material from Amis's notebooks, letters, juvenilia and manuscripts, as well as upon his own discussions with Amis and many of his friends. Weaving these sources with his own critical appraisal, Salwak plots each step in the development of Amis's imaginative vision throughout his writing career."--BOOK JACKET. "This illustrated study, which includes a selective chronology and a complete primary bibliography, will be read with pleasure by those who are interested in learning more about Kingsley Amis, modern novelist."--Jacket

Writers and their mothers by Dale Salwak( )

10 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ian McEwan, Margaret Drabble, Martin Amis, Rita Dove, Andrew Motion and Anthony Thwaite are among the twenty-two distinguished contributors of original essays to this landmark volume on the profound and frequently perplexing bond between writer and mother. In compelling detail they bring to life the thoughts, work, loves, friendships, passions and, above all, the influence of mothers upon their literary offspring from Shakespeare to the present. Many of the contributors evoke the ideal with fond and loving memories: understanding, selfless, spiritual, tender, protective, reassuring and self-assured mothers who created environments favorable to the development of their children's gifts. At the opposite end of the parenting spectrum, however, we also see tortured mothers who ignored, interfered with, smothered or abandoned their children. Their early years were times of traumatic loss, unhappily dominated by death and human frailty."--Publisher's description
