9780143116950: Money (Penguin Ink)

This is the story of John Self, consumer extraordinaire. Rolling around New York and London, he makes deals, spends wildly and does reckless movie-world business, all the while grabbing everything he can to sate his massive appetites; alcohol, tobacco, pills, pornography, a mountain of junk food and more. Ceaselessly inventive and thrillingly savage, this is a tale of life lived without restraint; of money, the terrible things it can do and the disasters it can precipitate.

Product Description:

The story of John Self and his insatiable appetite for money, alcohol, drugs, porn and more. Ceaselessly inventive and thrillingly savage, it is a tale of life lived without restraint; of money and the disasters it can precipitate. "From the Trade Paperback edition."

Review:

"Amis is still the finest English fiction writer of his generation" ( Sunday Independent)

"An electrifying writer who likes to shock his fans and share his sharply contemporary concerns... Amis is a maddening master you need to read - the best of his generation" ( Mail on Sunday)

"Amis is immaculate as a comic stylist...irresistible" ( Daily Telegraph)

"His eloquently rendered inner life shows a richness and tenderness" ( The Week)

"A comic opera of excess and humiliation, driven by the punch and panache of Amis's extraordinary prose, Money remains as satirically spot-on as when it was first published" ( The List)

Book Description Penguin Publishing Group, United Kingdom, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 193 x 127 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. One of Time s 100 best novels in the English language by the acclaimed author of Lionel Asbo: State of England and London Fields Part of Martin Amis s London Trilogy, along with the novel London Fields and The Information, Money was hailed as a sprawling, fierce, vulgar display ( The New Republic ) and exhilarating, skillful, savvy ( The Times Literary Supplement ) when it made its first appearance in the mid-1980s. Amis s shocking, funny, and on-target portraits of life in the fast lane form a bold and frightening portrait of Ronald Reagan s America and Margaret Thatcher s England. Money is the hilarious story of John Self, one of London s top commercial directors, who is given the opportunity to make his first feature film alternately titled Good Money and Bad Money. He is also living money, talking money, and spending money in his relentless pursuit of pleasure and success. As he attempts to navigate his hedonistic world of drinking, sex, drugs, and excessive quantities of fast food, Self is sucked into a wretched spiral of degeneracy that is increasingly difficult to surface from.
