Peter De Vries

Peter De Vries (1910-1993), the man responsible for contributing to the cultural vernacular such witticisms as Nostalgia ain't what it used to be and Deep down, he's shallow, was, according to Kingsley Amis, the funniest serious writer to be found on either side of the Atlantic. But De Vries's life and work was informed as much by sorrow as by wit.
