"Viciously funny, at once a hilarious joke and a technical triumph" Financial Times "Sparkling might not be the first adjective that springs to mind to describe a novel packed with the concentrated disgust which Dead Babies contains. Nevertheless, Martin Amis's version of the bleak and wrecky future that awaits a sex-and-drug-addicted society is so fizzing with style, so busy with verbal inventiveness, that the adjective is impelled upon one" -- Julian Barnes "Very funny, extremely clever" Guardian "A fine piece of comic-writing" Times literary supplement

Book Description:

'It's transfixing - At first it's funny. It teases, exaggerates, deliberates. Then it becomes ferocious, stricken, moving' The Times
