63 year old grandfathers need to stick together, ‘cause next year… we’ll be "Sixty-Four"

Sir, to be interviewed in FT´s Life&Arts must be an honor for an author. But for 63 year old grandfather Martin Amis, to be described when opening the door to the interviewer Martin Dickson, as having skin which has advanced from “plump to papery”, clearly must spoil much of the fun.

As a 63 year old grandfather, pondering the fact that next year we’ll reach that so distant “When I’m Sixty-four”, we heard the Beatles sing just minutes ago, with our respective Vera, Chuck and Dave on our knees, I feel I should express my deepest sense of solidarity with Mr. Amis.
