Low Hum & Little Lo | Martin Amis
Humbert Humbert, narrator of 'Lolita', is a sadist, narcissist and sexual deviant: so why should we think Nabokov's novel morally acceptable?

In search of Dieguito | Martin Amis
He rose from the slums of Buenos Aires to become the world's greatest footballer - then spectacularly self-destructed. Now, from his Cuban hospital bed, Maradona has published a remarkably frank autobiography.

Oktober | Martin Amis
The crowd was diversified by thin streams of dark-skinned and dark-clothed refugees, their eyes haunted and determined, their tread leaden but firm.

We owe Sir Kingsley Amis a drink | Fraser Allen
In fact, we owe him a bottle. If it wasn't for Everyday Drinking, his idiosyncratic guide to snifters, Hot Rum Cow would never have happened.

Why we love to hate Martin Amis | Sam Leith
Amis is our most controversial and outspoken novelist. As he returns to the Holocaust with a comedy set in Auschwitz, why do we love to give Little Keith such a kicking?

The shock of the Nou | Martin Amis
There was a collective will at work in Barcelona's stadium last Wednesday. And Martin Amis - after a long, strange trip - was just another face in the crowd.

Martin Amis | Patrick McGrath
Martin Amis is the author of a book of essays and five novels, of which the last, Money, is a vividly black comedy set in New York and London, featuring the misadventures of a large and ugly filmmaker named John Self, a man “addicted to the 20th century.” I talked to Martin Amis in his working sock in Westbourne Park, and despite much scurrilous yuppie journalism to the contrary, he is a nice man.
