A new reissue series of Martin Amis's novels to mark his 70th birthday
Martin Amis is the author of fourteen novels, the memoir Experience, two collections of stories and six collections of non-fiction. He lives in New York.
John (``Slick'') Self, 35, is the hero of Amis's fifth novel. He directs bosomy fast-food commercials, drives a purple Fiasco, has several very different lovers and travels frequently between London, New York and Los Angeles. Among the many laughable weirdos Amis introduces, only the verbally hyperventilating Slick seems credible. PW commented: ``Though it sprawls a bit, Money achieves a roiling, raunchy idiom that is exuberantly tuned to a contemporary beat, consummately literate and fun to read.'' (March)
"Amis is still the finest English fiction writer of his generation"
* Sunday Independent *
"An electrifying writer who likes to shock his fans and share his sharply contemporary concerns... Amis is a maddening master you need to read - the best of his generation" * Mail on Sunday *
"Amis is immaculate as a comic stylist...irresistible" * Daily Telegraph *
"His eloquently rendered inner life shows a richness and tenderness" * The Week *
"A comic opera of excess and humiliation, driven by the punch and panache of Amis's extraordinary prose, Money remains as satirically spot-on as when it was first published" * The List *
