Summary (From the publisher):

The Green Man’s Maurice Allington is a worldly publican, but haunted. His pub is inhabited by the spirit of Dr. Thomas Underhill, the seventeenth century scholar rumoured to have killed his wife. The local sexton had refused to dig Underhill’s grave. And the rector had declined to officiate at his funeral.

And there are skeletons in the cupboard of Allington’s own domestic affairs - just rattling to get out.

Blurbs:
  • "The Green Man contains all the best and familiar Amis qualities - including superb sexual comedy, rich minor characterisation, grim specific knowledge of how the contemporary pseudo world works - plus an ability to give his fiction a new twist." Sunday Times
  • "A splendid chiller, in the uncomplicated, old-fashioned sense. THE GREEN MAN is also an extremely funny book, filled with slapstick, parody and satire. Indeed, the success of this novel depends very much on the balance that Amis maintains between laughter and fear." New York Times
