9780679735731: The Information

Fame, envy, lust, violence, intrigues literary and criminal--they're all here in The Information. How does one writer hurt another writer? This is the question novelist Richard Tull mills over, for his friend Gwyn Barry has become a darling of book buyers, award committees, and TV interviewers, even as Tull himself sinks deeper into the sub-basement of literary failure. The only way out of this predicament, Tull believes, is the plot the demise of Barry.

"With The Information, Amis delivers a portrait of middle-age realignment with more verbal felicity and unbridled reach than [anyone] since Tom Wolfe forged Bonfire of the Vanities."--Houston Chronicle

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
