In Success Amis pens a mismatched pair of foster brothers—one "a quivering condom of neurosis and ineptitude," the other a "bundle of contempt, vanity and stock-response"—in a single London flat. He binds them with ties of class hatred, sexual rivalry, and disappointed love, and throws in a disloyal girlfriend and a spectacularly unstable sister to create a modern-day Jacobean revenge comedy that soars with malicious poetry.

One of those books whose meaning only really becomes clear when you reach the end, this is one of my least favourite of Amis's work (that said, I haven't read "Yellow Dog" so maybe I should hang fire on that).I remarked before that Amis could take a small story and make it big just with the power of his prose, but this little story defies that. There are big moments that make the whole worth reading, but there isn't enough forward momentum to drag the reader into the story like you find in some of his other work.
