Complete Stories

by Kingsley Amis; Rachel Cusk (Introduction by)



Product Description

Kingsley Amis wrote short stories throughout his five decades as a published novelist, some of them character or situation sketches which stand next to the novels, others daring experimentations with genre. For the first time these stories are collected in one volume - the literary detective piece 'Mr Barrett's Secret' rubbing shoulders with the unsettling science fiction of 'A Twitch on the Thread' and the subtle drama 'All The Blood Within Me'.  He will be remembered primarily as a comic novelist, and there is much in these stories that will raise a smile, but they also demonstrate his remarkable range and sense of adventure.With an introduction by Rachel Cusk'One of the few truly great prose stylists to have appeared in England since the second World War.' Guardian'The future will learn about the state of English today not from the linguists but from Amis.' Anthony Burgess
