Absolutely one of the funniest, smartest, meanest books I know. John Self, the Rabelaisian narrator of the novel, is an advertising man and director of TV commercials who lurches through London and Manhattan, eating, drinking, drugging and smoking too much, buying too much sex, and caring for little else besides getting the big movie deal that will make him lots of money. Hey, it was the '80s. Most importantly, however, Amis in Money musters more sheer entertainment power in any single sentence than most writers are lucky to produce in a career.About the Author:
Martin Amis is the author of eleven other novels, including The Rachel Papers, which won the Somerset Maugham Award. He lives in London.
Bert Krak, a master of classic American tattooing, got his start at Rock-A-Billy Tattoo in Lauderhill, Florida, and now works at Top Shelf Tattooing in Queens, New York.
