Product Description:

The story of a life told backwards. Its narrator, Doctor Tod T. Friendly, trapped and hurtling towards a terrible secret, moves out of the blackest sleep to find himself surrounded by doctors and on the deathbed of a man in whose body he is imprisoned.

Review:

"Amis's backwards world is rigorously imagined. It is a world of pathos and cruel hilarity...but the crux, the test of his vision, is what he does with Auschwitz." -- "Guardian" "Extraordinary...Ironic inversion is essentially a comic device, but its trickery here yields results that are rigorously grave." -- "Independent on Sunday" "Amis's most daring and ambitious novel." -- "Daily Telegraph"
