Maurice Allington has reached middle age and is haunted by death. As he says, a€œI honestly cana€™t see why everybody who isna€™t a child, everybody whoa€™s theoretically old enough to have understood what death means, doesna€™t spend all his time thinking about it. Ita€™s a pretty arresting thought.a€ He also happens to own and run a country inn that is haunted. The Green Man opens as Mauricea€™s father drops dead (had he seen something in the room?) and continues as friends and family convene for the funeral. Mauricea€™s problems are many and increasing: How to deal with his own declining health? How to reach out to a teenage daughter who watches TV all the time? How to get his best frienda€™s wife in the sack? How to find another drink? (And another.) And then there is always death. The Green Man is a ghost story that hits a live nerve, a very black comedy with an uncannily happy ending: in other words, Kingsley Amis at his best.There has been an inn on this site since the Middle Ages, from which parts of the present building date; after some 190 years of service as a dwelling its original function and something of its original appearance, were restored in 1961. ...
