Description: From the cover: “Gordon Scott-Thompson, a struggling hack, gets commissioned to write the biography of veteran novelist, Jimmie Fane. It is a task which proves to be fraught with extraordinary and unforeseen difficulties. Fane, an unashamed snob, has many pet hates, including younger men with moustaches and trendy pronunciation. Scott-Thompson, however, is extremely attached to his own moustache and not so particular about his use of language. It doesn’t help matters that Fane’s wife Joanna isn’t yet sure what she feels about moustaches, but has decided views on younger men. So, will Gordon have to part with his most distinctive facial feature for the sake of a publisher’s advance? Or perhaps advances of an amorous nature will lead Gordon into even more dangerous complications…

Kingsley Amis’s keen eye for the nuances of class difference has never been put to sharper use. Deliciously wicked and delightfully mischievous, The Biographer’s Moustache mercilessly exposes a literary world of pretension and vanity while poignantly revealing the potential for love across the social divide.”
