    Epub Kingsley Amis ✓ Epub Stanley and the Women PDF/EPUB ☆ Stanley and eBook ✓ ancient history.co stanley pdf, women mobile, Stanley and mobile, Stanley and the Women PDFDespite the ire displayed here by some silly ideologues this is really a first rate novel by the inimitable Kingsley Amis He creates a character with an authentic voice a character that is both comically befuddled and ultimately depressingly confused But always likeable likeable because he is true and concerned His portrait of his ex wife and his present wife are biting although at the beginning he is certainly taken with and devoted to that present wife But the male characters don't really fare much better They're mostly foolishly powerless sots To the extent it can be said to be misogynistic its a misogynism that is earned And a misogynism that is wonderfully comic Amis's male characters in his fiction have suffered much worse Grow upAs a corrective if you like read Amis foll
