Written in 1969, The Green Man (ISBN 978-0-89733-220-0), is a novel by the noted British author Kingsley Amis. A Times Literary Supplement reviewer described The Green Man as “three genres of novel in one”: ghost story, moral fable, and comic novel. The novel reflects Amis’s willingness to experiment with genre novels (e.g., The Alteration (science fiction/alternate history), or Colonel Sun: a James Bond Adventure) while displaying many of the characteristics of his conventional novels, both in superficial aspects such as fogeyishness and problems with alcohol, and in more substantive aspects such as a self-reflective observation of human cruelty and selfishness in everyday relations.
