61 AMIS, Kingsley Old Devils. First Edition in dustjacket
Hutchinson, London, 1986, ISBN:0091637902 
AMIS, Kingsley. The Old Devils. London : Hutchinsion, (1986). First Edition. Pp. 294. 8vo, brown cloth, gilt titles to spine. Winner of the 1986 Booker Prize for Fiction. "Malcolm, Peter and Charlie and their Soave-sodden wives have one main ambition left in life: to drink Wales dry. But their routine is both shaken and stirred when they are joined by professional WelshmanAlun Weaver (CBE) and his wife, Rhiannon." "The Old Devils shows the awful and absurd consequences when a group of men and women begin to move out of the comfortable shelter of middle age into a new sense of isolation and lo ss, of regret for lost opportunity and for destructive selfishness too. Thereturn of flourishing Alun and Rhiannon Weaver to their native South Wales brings 'a shake-up all round' - for soft, sentimental Malcolm, disappointe d Gwen, thirsty Charlie at the end of his tether. Peter trapped in guilt and Muriel, his genial, venomous English wife, even Sophie, once 'the surest thing between Bridgend and Carmarthen town'. In varied ways - horrifically in one case - the past catches up with them all." Very good in dustjacket. 35.00

"Roger Micheldene, an English publisher, is on the loose in the U.S. He spends an Octoberweek shuttling between New York and Budweiser College in Pennsylvania. Thi s exercises all his British appetites.snobbery, gluttony, anger, sloth and lust. But Amis roasts Americans as well and serves us familiar dishes, though in a piquant sauce: the precocious undergraduate author of a far-out novel, an earnest young priest, and an alcoholic literary agents nymphomaniacal wife. They are all presented with glee and gusto and the keenest wit, butit is Roger Micheldene, at once a prototype of the insufferable Englishman and an individual with sufficient humour to win our sneaking sympathy, who dominates a supremely entertaining comedy of bad manners." Name to flyleaf , else very good, with minor bumping to corners and one-inch missing from tail of dustjacket. 35.00

"Lunch at Scott's, a quiet game of golf, a routine social call on his chief M, convalescing in his Regency house in Berkshire - the life of secret agent James Bond has begun to fall into a pattern tha t threatens complacency … until the sunny afternoon when M is kidnapped andhis house staff savagely murdered.The action ricochets across the globe to a volcanic Greek island where the glacial, malign Colonel Sun Liang-tan of the People's Liberation Army of China collaborates with an ex-nazi atrocit y expert in a world-menacing conspiracy. Bond finds himself working in alliance with the beautiful tawny-blonde agent of a rival secret service in thestruggle to overpower this ruthless enemy who discards the unwritten rules of espionage. Stripped of all professional aids, Bond faces unarmed the mo nstrous devices of Colonel Sun in a test that brings him to the verge of his physical endurance. Incredibly, the author adds his own imaginative impetus to the Bond saga yet preserves all the excitement and eloquence, the pace and glitter of a vintage Fleming novel." (from the dj).
