‘No-one can hold a candle to Martin Amis’ Daily Mail
How can one writer hurt another where it really counts? This is the problem facing novelist Richard Tull, contemplating the success of his friend and rival Gwyn Barry. Revenger’s tragedy, comedy of errors, contemporary satire, The Information is an extraordinary novel of dark humour and piercing insight.
“A book of brilliant energies, a comedy of enraged passions. Amis's writing shares the grandeur of the big American writers”
Malcolm Bradbury, The Times
“Any other writer would kill to reach this high style. Amis can stroll the heights at his leisure - the writing is on fire”
“Amis has made previous incursions into the grubby end of Ladbroke Grove and the infection of urban self-pity. But he's never been quite so funny about it”
