This from the review by Stefan Collini (London Review of
Books, Vol. 28, Number 24, 14 December 2006) of Zachary Leader's The
Life of Kingsley Amis about something amiss in the literary relationship
between Kingsley and his son Martin, author of Visiting Mrs. Nabokov:
"They couldn't, it seems, talk much about their writing, largely because
Kingsley really hated all that clever-clever experimental Nabokovian
crap he thought of his son as writing."



Unlucky Volodya caught hell coming and going, not only from
Kingsley but also from Martin who excoriated Look at the Harliquins!
(Boyd, AY, 625).
