One reviewer described Amis's new book as "seeing you favorite uncle on the playground... masturbating" or something like that....
Now another scathing review excerpted from the New York Times Books Update:
righteous urge toward pedantry, the satirist reaches the
limits of his form," says Walter Kirn, the author of "Up in
the Air." "Martin Amis, with his new novel of pornography,
tabloid journalism and sexual politics, seems to have reached
this subtle turning point."
Well, I am sure all of his money will cushion Amis's fall from literary grace; besides in our world, as in Oscar Wilde's there is no such thing as bad publicity.
