James Booth

James Booth wrote the biography Philip Larkin: Life, Art and Love (Bloomsbury) and edited Larkin’s Letters Home (Faber)

This is not only an objective biography by a distinguished academic, it is also a warm personal memoir

Philip Larkin’s long association with Kingsley and Martin Amis resulted in the poet being misrepresented and misunderstood
