Experience - you can say that again
If you are a reader with a capital "R", this book is a must read. Martin Amis' gift with language, his sense of humor, and the rich material of his family life come together to make the reading of the book an experience in itself.
I've literally read and re-read this book so many times the cover has fallen off. I like Mr. Amis' fiction writing but this book is, in my opinion, his best, and easily one of my alltime favorites.

I Found It: A Treasure beyond Imagination--It'sAll Mine
I have three pages remaining before I complete this overwhelming story. I am hating to finish, I will have lost a marvelous companion. I reluctantly will close it; yes, yes I will. Replacing it with W H A T???I will read it again and wonder and wonder about your life as the adult child of an alcoholic. Your Dad was absolutely a master of black, dark humor and much strength it would take to deal with the man -- alive as well as dead. He simply expired and knew well what he was doing. There is such sadness that he left you with just a minute awareness of himself as a person. I love this book because it enabled me to look at my parent, also an alcoholic, and wonder more about myself and the being of myself. I am done now.
