The anti-egotist : Kingsley Amis, man of letters by Paul Fussell( Book )

10 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 676 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Anti-Egotist, Fussell captures the essence of Amis as a man of letters; part biography, part critical appraisal, The Anti-Egotist traces the influences that have shaped Amis's writing, ranging from his schooldays through military service to university teaching, as he emerged as a novelist, poet, and essayist. By drawing our attention to the details first of Amis's life, then of his writing, Fussell reveals the profound moral sense that expresses itself so wonderfully in Amis's fiction and criticism. He mixes affection with insight as he paints a highly personal portrait of Amis as writer who despises self-promotion in all its forms, savaging the world's show-offs and blowhards with a particularly sharp-toothed bite. -- Publisher description (abridged)

Doing battle : the making of a skeptic by Paul Fussell( Book )

5 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fussell writes about an idyllic boyhood shattered by World War II - and the way the war experience changed his perspective on everything that came before and after. His life began in Pasadena, California, a pastoral middle-class sanctuary almost untouched by the Great Depression. He went as an innocent to nearby Pomona College, where he learned about drink and women, and spent afternoons marching on the football field with the ROTC. And then, when the United States entered World War II, the spell was broken. At nineteen he joined the army and began the central event of his life. He endured basic training, became a second lieutenant in the infantry, and, leading his platoon into battle, was seriously wounded. When he recovered, he vowed never to take orders again. His newly subversive sensibility would color all his later years, as a Harvard Ph. D. student, as a professor of literature, and as one of America's most distinguished commentators on twentieth-century life
