Book Summary of The Green Man

Like all good coaching inns, the Green Man is said to boast a resident ghost: Dr Thomas Underhill, a notorious seventeenth-century practitioner of black arts and sexual deviancy, rumored to have killed his wife. However, the landlord, Maurice Allington, is the sole witness to the renaissance of the malevolent Underhill. Led by an anxious desire to vindicate his sanity, Allington strives to uncover the key to Underhill's satanic powers. All while the skeletons in the cupboard of Allington's own domestic affairs rattle to get out too.

Edward November 18, 2009 review from Goodreads

This is the fifth book Iâ??ve read by Kingsley Amis, and with each new foray I am increasingly convinced that I shall have to read them all. I love Amisâ?? personality so much that it does not seem to matter at all what heâ??s on about, so long as heâ??s on. Say anything you want about Amisâ?? private life...

Sandy August 18, 2011 review from Goodreads

Kingsley Amis' sole horror novel, "The Green Man," had long been on my list of "must read" books, for the simple reason that it has been highly recommended by three sources that I trust. British critic David Pringle chose it for inclusion in his overview volume "Modern Fantasy: The 100 Best Novel...

D-day October 15, 2010 review from Goodreads

Maurice Allington is the alcoholic owner of The Green Man Inn, whose main preoccupation is trying to convince his wife and mistress to have a menage a trois. The Green Man Inn dates back several centuries and is reputed t...

Timothy June 13, 2010 review from Goodreads

Why don't people read Amis any more? LUCKY JIM, THE GREEN MAN, THE ANTI-DEATH LEAGUE, JAKE'S THING -- the great titles go on and on. In THE GREEN MAN, a city-dweller buys an extravagantly haunted pub in the oldest of old forests, and his world elegantly falls apart. He schemes for weeks to set up...

Mark September 04, 2007 review from Goodreads
