In his critical biography, Neil Powell looks at the careers of these two very divisive, and hugely talented writers: how they were formed by their upbringings, developed as writers and in turn how they affected literature, and each other. He examines how success (which is the title of one of Martin Amiss novels) affected their relationship, and themselves as writers (Kingsley: Martins spending a year abroad for tax purposes. 29, he is.
