9780143116950: Money (Penguin Ink)

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.

Review:


"Savagely hilarious. It risks, it boils with energy . . . it even manages to shock." --Jonathan Yardley, "The Washington Post Book World"
"Martin Amis's vibrantly dark 1985 novel, "Money," gave us a rollicking, repulsive picture of London and New York in the late 20th century, awash in cash, corruption, pornography, junk food, junk art, self-promotion and wretched excess of every imaginable variety. More than two and a half decades later that novel's scabrous vision of a crude, rude world reeling from narcissism and acquisitiveness seems as potent as ever. Its hilariously awful hero, John Self, is an uncanny harbinger of the willful vulgarians who would gain even more ascendancies in the reality-show, greed-is-great era of the 21st century."--Michiko Kakutani, "The New York Times"
