About this title:
Synopsis:
A devastating satire of literary life, as the unpublished and unpublishable Richard Tull plots the downfall of his stratospherically successful friend and fellow novelist Gwyn Barry. How can one writer hurt another where it really counts -- his reputation? This is the problem facing novelist Richard Tull, contemplating the success of his friend and rival Gwyn Barry. Revenger's tragedy, comedy of errors, contemporary satire, 'The Information' skewers high life and low in Martin Amis's brilliant return to the territory of 'Money' and 'London Fields'.

From the Back Cover:

"Mr. Amis is his generation's top literary dog...Dazzling...You're never out of reach of a sparkly phrase, stiletto metaphor or drop-dead insight into the human condition...Mr. Amis goes where other humorists fear to tread...Look out, Flaubert! Look out, Joyce!" --The New Your Times Book Review

"This is Amis' best work to date...Funny, angry, caustic and brilliant." --The Montreal Gazette

"Talent of a very high order...Darkly funny...vastly sophisticated...A particularly ingenious masterpiece of comic plotting." --The Toronto Star



From the Inside Flap:
The Limited Edition of Martin Amis's magnificent novel of literary envy. In The Information, the best-selling author of London Fields and Time's Arrow has written a totally mesmerizing and thoroughly entertaining novel that puts all of his extraordinary talents on display. "I've always thought of Martin Amis as the literary Mick Jagger of my generation.--Christopher Buckley, Washington Times
