    One Fat Englishman PDF Ô One Fat Kindle - englishman book, One Fat epub, One Fat Englishman MOBIThis book offers a quite remarkably negative self portrait The most obvious explanation is that Amis was disgusted with himself for leaving his first wife in such a callous manner but few people would have gone this far There's an interesting question of chronology here which I remember discussing with Jordan and Beth Ann Maybe someone who knows about Amis can tell us in precisely which order the following events happened? Amis starts writing this novel Amis decides on the title One Fat Englishman Amis gets involved with the woman who later becomes his second wife While Amis is asleep on the beach his first wife scrawls 1 FAT ENGLISHMAN I FUCK ANYTHING on his back in lipstick and takes a photograph which is later widely circulated Amis leaves his first wife

    One Fat Englishman PDF Ô One Fat Kindle - englishman book, One Fat epub, One Fat Englishman MOBII'm so glad people aren't writing books like this today They aren't are they? This is a truly unpleasant satire hip deep in unfunny snark Roger Micheldene is a fat lecherous child hating asshole Brit a publisher on sojourn in the US Despite his fat lecherous assholery women seem to be perfectly willing to sleep with him mysteriously even attractive happily married women although no one really likes him partly because he's British partly because he's an asshole No one in this book is likeable it must be said Here he is entering a shop with whose proprietress he plans to share some afternoon delightA girl of Oriental appearance who would have been quite acceptable if she had had eye sockets as well as eyes came forward and said Good afternoon sir and what can I show you this afternoon?Although relieved at no

There's powerful insight here among the ashes and e

    One Fat Englishman PDF Ô One Fat Kindle - englishman book, One Fat epub, One Fat Englishman MOBIHilarious and fascinating a youngish and still reputedly socialist Kingsley Amis predicts his future as an obese bigoted alcoholic womanizer with astonishing accuracy Kingsley rarely wastes his words and his ability to put across comic situations is peerless well except for his son Martin Here we get a darker nastier version of his usual sexual shenanigans with some attempted mockery of America thrown in for good measure the novel is set in a fictional southern college called Budweiser University These rubber arrows almost never hit their mark but when you enter into the booze soaked priapic maze of the title character's brain you will not stop laughing

    One Fat Englishman PDF Ô One Fat Kindle - englishman book, One Fat epub, One Fat Englishman MOBIThis is the first and so far only book by Kingsley Amis I have read and judging by some of its other reviews it isn't his best loved work I enjoyed it though and so this encourages me to read other books by him I did not find it laugh out loud funny as some reviewers have but it definitely had me smiling sometimes broadly on than one occasion As a satire of contemporary to publication British and American culture in the sauced up swinging former half of the 1960's however I did feel like I was missing some of the subtlety of the social commentary simply because it's now so removed in timeThis book is a character sketch and psychological portrait as much as it is a satire though and I found it a compassionate if unshrinking one But then I'm probably also the president and sole member of the Real Life Women Who Like Roger Micheldene Fan Club You can read other reviews as to why he's a completely unredeemed and insufferable character they are lies Roger is an ant

    One Fat Englishman PDF Ô One Fat Kindle - englishman book, One Fat epub, One Fat Englishman MOBIAs well as being splutteringly coffee spittingly funny Kingsley Amis is always uncomfortable to read I used to think that this was because of the decidedly politically incorrect right wing Anglocentric and alas frequently racist attitudes which we know from history and biography he lent directly from his own to many of his fictional characters grotesque as he may have made them As I've come however with advancing age and disillusionment to sympathise with many of his conservative positions though not the racism and misogyny I still find him vaguely disconcerting and I've realised at my first ever encounter with this comparatively early novel that it has nothing to do with politics or social attitudes per se but rather with the peop
