Take a Girl Like You may well be Kingsley Amis?s most ambitious reckoning with the serious subject at the heart of his work: the sheer squalor?emotional, material, sexual, you name it?of modern life. It also introduces one of the rare unqualified good guys in Amis?s rogue-ridden world: Jenny Bunn, a girl from the (English) north country come south to teach school in a small smug town where she hopes to find love and fortune. Jenny is a beauty and men and women are crazy about her, most of all handsome Patrick Standish, who Jenny also likes. But Jenny and Patrick live in a world where it?s becoming ridiculously difficult?disastrously difficult?to sort out the claims of sex and the claims of love.
Inhaltsangabe: TAKE A GIRL LIKE YOU is the story of attractive little Jenny Bunn, come south to teach and confront head-on, the cold, cold world.
"The best novel Amis has written; it has the comic gusto, the loathing of pretension that made LUCKY JIM so engaging and high-spirited." (Listener)
"Incendiary stuff...a really formidable blaze. This is his most interesting so far...and no less funny than the first." (Observer)
