Review

"A scrupulous and candid writer" Guardian "His memoir is dazzling, provocative and mordant" -- Arthur Smith The Week "Funny, sad, moving and absolutely riveting" Daily Telegraph "On virtually every page there is a phrase that is blissfully funny and ingenious...never less than compelling" Mail on Sunday "Three times in the reading of this book, the courage, compassion and simplicity of Amis's writing brought me to tears. As a portrait of sustaining love between a father and a son, Experience stands alone among the testaments" The Time
