About the Author
MARTIN AMIS is the author of 15 novels--among them Zone of Interest, London Fields, Time's Arrow, The Information, and Night Train--along with the memoir Experience, the novelized self-portrait Inside Story, two collections of stories, and seven nonfiction books. He died in 2023.
"A comic murder mystery, an apocalyptic satire, a scatological meditation on love and death and nuclear turns lyrical and obscene, colloquial and rhapsodic." --Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times

"Amis has trumped himself. . . . A complex and daring work that contains many passages of comic genius that can hardly be matched in English fiction since Dickens." --Newsday

"Amis' prose is hiw own: slangy, showy, knowing, with pinball rhythms. . . . [London Fields] is wickedly good." --Philadelphia Inquirer

"London Fields is Martin Amis' most ambitious, intelligent and nourishing novel to date. . . . Amis is hilariously eloquent." --Cleveland Plain Dealer

"Amis is a brilliant entertainer who knows how to wrap his anger at the terminal horrors of contemporary life in a movelike montage of varying styles and voices." --Newsweek

"A literary, funny, elaborate novel marinated in sex." --Wall Street Journal

"I Am one of many readers who thought that Money was the novel of the '80s, the book that captured the obscene greed of a decade. Now, with London Fields, Amis has published what may stand as the definitive end-of-the-millennium novel." --USA Today

"Amis is a clever, skillful writer, and London Fields displays his range of talents well." --San Francisco Chronicle

"His novel is a great act of generosity, a capacious and intelligent book that announces the author's importance in the arena of contemporary literature." --Vogue
