This is the first collection of original essays ever published on Martin Amis, one of England's most controversial and critically acclaimed authors. Impressively international in scope, it assembles the ideas of twelve scholars from six different countries to clarify the major trends and transitions in Amis's work. In essays that cover each of his novels as well as previously ignored non-fiction essays, it will become an authoritative resource for scholars, students and fans of Amis's work in general.
