Tonight: Kingsley Amis Is Celebrated

As a reminder: tonight marks the celebration of NYRB Classics’ new editions of two Kingsley Amis novels, Lucky Jim and The Old Devils. Things kick off at the Housing Works Bookstore at 7 p.m., with Rosie Schaap, Parul Sehgal, and Maud Newton sharing their thoughts on the life and work of Mr. Amis. Brooklyn Gin will be provided. (Also of note: Jen Vafidis’s essay “Drinking Like a Kingsley Amis Character.”)

The details for tonight’s event can also be found on the ubiquitous Facebook invite.
