あらすじ・解説

Here we have readings of selected correspondence between the poet Philip Larkin (played by Alan Bennett) and the writer Kingsley Amis (played by Robert Hardy) for your listening pleasure.

A meeting at Oxford University during World War II signalled the beginning of a lifelong friendship between two outstanding contributors to 20th century English literature: Philip Larkin, poet, and Kingsley Amis, the prolific novelist.

Selected from correspondence written between 1943 and 1985, these letters offer an entertaining and illuminating insight into the prejudices, exasperations and in-jokes of two literary greats. A linking commentary complements the writers' own words as they relate events in their personal lives, report on their work in progress, and generally rail against the modem world.

Petulant listener wants more

Foolish to feel cheated because there were not more letters..although we are told many are missing. Do we also feel a massive amount of censorship in the original or radio source editors?
If not done already, those listeners who are as enthralled, as this reader is, should follow up or fall back on what other, rich material exists to fill in many blanks about the two men.
And the poetry of course!
Both actors are outstanding in their roles.
Don't much like the music used as transitions..unnecessary, distracting flourishes .

Dead white males. My favourite.

It is a shame indeed that more of the letters haven't survived. These are, by turns, erudite, literary, childish, arrogant, snobbish, coarse, very funny, and sad. And the readings really are superb. A must listen for all fans of Larkin and/or Amis.

I agree with the reviewer who was irritated by the incidental music. This would be better without it.

I've had this audiobook less than 48 hours and listened to it five times. THAT is how good it is.
