Description - You Can't Do Both by Kingsley Amis
Robin Davies is both a shrewd observer and an energetic actor in a drama that takes him from school to Oxford. With him we live through all the pangs of a pre-war adolescence in South London, and on through his rites of passage to adulthood, involving rebellion, self-discovery, sex, seduction and commitment. You Can't Do Both is classic Amis - brilliantly funny, outrageous, and alive to every social nuance; it is also tender, compellingly insightful and strongly autobiographical.
