Martin Amis would come across much more meaningfully in the hands of a less unctuous biographer, and certainly he deserves one with a less convoluted, bloviated style. If you believe, as Bradford does, that Amis is the most influential writer of his time, then this book may be for you. If you would place Amis is a more modest part of the firmament, you'll grow tired of this biography quickly.
