Martin Amis is the author of twelve novels, including The Rachel Papers, Money, London Fields, Time's Arrow, House of Meetings, and most recently, The Pregnant Widow; the memoir Experience; and two collections of stories and six of nonfiction. According to The New Republic, "Like Joyce and Nabokov, Amis trades in mysteries, in riddles, in revelations half-offered in quasi-cryptic language… Sentence by sentence, Amis still writes some of the keenest prose in English today." His new novel, Lionel Asbo: State of England, will be out this summer.
