A devastating satire of literary life, as the unpublished and unpublishable Richard Tull plots the downfall of his stratospherically successful friend and fellow novelist Gwyn Barry.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'.
