About this book
Paperback edition of Amis' latest novel, a comedy about youth, the 1970s, the sexual revolution and its aftermath. Gloriously risqué and ferociously funny. '...no one better understands the cosmic joke that is humanity.' Andrew Anthony, "Observer" *Also appeared in March Buyer's Notes*
An Italian poolside, Summer, 1970. Sex is very much on everyone's mind. The girls are acting like boys and the boys are going on acting like boys. Keith Nearing - a bookish twenty year old, in that much disputed territory between five foot six and five foot seven - is struggling to twist feminism towards his own ends.
