Kingsley Amis's drink writing is better than anybody else's, ever. Esquire

New in giftable hardcover, with an introduction by Christopher Hitchens-a collection of witty and deeply informed writings on wine, beer, and cocktails, from one of the all-time experts.

Kingsley Amis was one of the great masters of comic prose, and no subject was dearer to him than the art and practice of drinking.

Everyday Drinking brings together the best of his writing on the subject: Kingsley Amis in Drink, Everyday Drinking and How's Your Glass?. In one handsome package, the book covers a full shelf of the master's humorous and erudite thoughts on the drinking arts. Along with a series of well-tested recipes (including a cocktail called the Lucky Jim) are Amis's musings on The Hangover, The Boozing Man's Diet, and (presumably as a matter of speculation) How Not to Get Drunk--all leavened with entertaining quizzes on the making and drinking of alcohol all over the world.

Mixing practical know-how and hilarious opinionation, Everyday Drinking is a delightful cocktail of wry humor and distilled knowledge, served by one of our great gimlet wits.
