Absolutely one of the funniest, smartest, meanest books I know. John Self, the Rabelaisian narrator of the novel, is an advertising man and director of TV commercials who lurches through London and Manhattan, eating, drinking, drugging and smoking too much, buying too much sex, and caring for little else besides getting the big movie deal that will make him lots of money. Hey, it was the '80s. Most importantly, however, Amis in Money
musters more sheer entertainment power in any single sentence than most writers are lucky to produce in a career.
"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." —
Christopher Hitchens, The Week
