9780099461852: Success

Smooth-talking, sensual and self-deluded, Gregory Riding leads an existence of formidable foppishness, his days and nights a series of effortless, titillating conquests and tireless sex - sister, employers, acquaintances are but co-stars among a cast of thousands to have passed through his busy bed. His foster brother, Terry, has to make do with the leavings as he trawls through life in a miasma of grief, burdened by an unmentionable past and the unlikelihood of ever having a good time in bed. But roles are reversed with both lives dramatically changed, when Success swivels her capricious gaze.

Review:

"Beautifully constructed to make a coherent, powerful and still fairly unusual statement about changing English society" ( Evening Standard)

"An instantly recognizable voice, penetrating, loquacious, slightly hysterical, upsetting, rising above the basso pseudo-profundo babble of his competitors like filed fingernails scraping down glass - Martin Amis is a dazzling phrasemaker" ( Sunday Times)

"Amis pulls off his literary feat with panache" (James Buchan Spectator)

From the Publisher:

'A terrifying, painfully funny Swiftian exercise in moral disgust' Observer
