Ending Up. Published by the Penguin Group. Penguin Books Ltd, 80 Strand, London WC2R 0RL, England. Kingsley Amis’s fiction, however, is no more hazy than a scalpel. Almost forty years ago he produced his own study of communal living for the over-seventies, in a novel which is as untainted by self-delusion as it is ruthlessly funny. Ending Up was published in 1974, when Amis was fifty-two and almost a decade into his second marriage, to Elizabeth Jane Howard.

Philip Amis Martin Amis Sally Amis. Sir Kingsley William Amis, CBE (16 April 1922 – 22 October 1995) was an English novelist, poet, critic, and teacher. Amis's opinions on books and people tended to appear, and often were conservative, and yet, as the title essay of the collection shows, he was not merely reverent of "the classics" and of traditional morals, but more disposed to exercise his own rather independent judgement in all things
