Martin Amis is one of the most influential and polarising literary figures of our times. A satirist and provocateur, for four decades Amis has been one of the foremost chroniclers of contemporary society.
Rising to prominence with contemporaries and friends Salman Rushdie, Ian McEwan and Christopher Hitchens, Amis has cemented a reputation as a controversial and fearless public commentator. His finest novels include The Rachel Papers, Money, London Fields and The Pregnant Widow.
In his recent book, Lionel Asbo: State of England, Amis returns with his inimitable, darkly humorous style to examine the decline of modern Britain in the age of celebrity.
