In this remarkable work of autobiography, the son of the great comic novelist Kingsiey Amis, Martin Amis explores his relationship with his father and writes about the various crises of Kingsiey's life, including the final crisis of his death.

Amis also reflects on the life and legacy of his cousin, Lucy Partington, who disappeared without trace in 1973 and was exhumed twenty years later from the basement of Frederick West, one of Britain's most prolific serial murderers.
