Overview

"Take a Girl Like You" may well be Kingsley Amis s most ambitious reckoning with the serious subject at the heart of his work: the sheer squalor emotional, material, sexual, you name it of modern life. It also introduces one of the rare unqualified good guys in Amis s rogue-ridden world: Jenny Bunn, a girl from the (English) north country come south to teach school in a small smug town where she hopes to find love and fortune. Jenny is a beauty and men and women are crazy about her, most of all handsome Patrick Standish, who Jenny also likes. But Jenny and Patrick live in a world where it s becoming ridiculously difficult disastrously difficult to sort out the claims of sex and the claims of love."
