Summary
Gifted and innovative novelist Martin Amis has been the object of obsessive media scrutiny for much of his career. In this much anticipated memoir, he writes with striking candor about his life and, in the process, gives us a clear view of the 'geography of the writer's mind'. The son of comic novelist Kingsley Amis, Martin explores his relationship with his father and writes about the various crises of Kingsley's life, including his death. Amis also reflects on the life and legacy of his cousin, Lucy Partington, who disappeared in 1973 and was exhumed nearly twenty years later from the back garden of Britain's most prolific serial murderer. Inevitably, too, the memoir records the changing literary scene in Britain and the United States, including a wealth of anecdotes along with memorable pen-portraits of Bellow, Rushdie, Allan Bloom, Philip Larkin, Robert Graves, and Elizabeth Jane Howard, among others.--From publisher description
