Everyday Drinking : The Distilled Kingsley Amis, Hardback Book

Everyday Drinking : The Distilled Kingsley Amis Hardback

Hardback

Description

"Kingsley Amis's drink writing is better than anybody else's, ever..." EsquireKingsley Amis was one of the great masters of comic prose, and no subject was dearer to him than the art and practice of imbibing. Everyday Drinking brings together the best of his writing on the subject: Kingsley Amis in Drink, Everyday Drinking and How's Your Glass?

In one handsome package, the book covers a full shelf of the master's riotous and erudite thoughts on the drinking arts; along with a series of well-tested recipes (including a cocktail called the Lucky Jim) are Amis's musings on The Hangover, The Boozing Man's Diet, The Mean Sod's Guide, and (presumably as a matter of speculation) How Not to Get Drunk - all leavened with fun quizzes on the making and drinking of alcohol all over the world. Mixing practical know-how and hilarious opinionation, this is a delightful cocktail of wry humour and distilled knowledge, served by one of our great gimlet wits. With an introduction by Christopher Hitchens.
