It's called The Letters of Kingsley Amis. It's at amazon. http://www.amazon.co...9811610-5481422

I haven't got it yet but I've got to get my hands on it. I saw it at a shop yesterday. As a part of his letters he mentions James Bond etc... and there are about 5 or so. It gives an interesting insight into Glidrose (from what I read it did anyway).

But there was one that particularily interested me! Amis was saying how lowsy he thought the John Gardner novels where. He said something along the lines of, "the man just can't write".

If anyone has the book please tell me!
