it was amazing
Read in January, 2009

This is a collection of essays (along with two bits of fiction) loosely tied around the theme of Islamism and 9/11 written between 2002 and 2007. Amis's assessment of Tony Blair, based on an unproductive interview, is witty and insightful. His portrait of Islamism is horrifying; his use of both fact and fiction makes that portrait unsettling, unreal, and alive. Perhaps he has gotten to the truth of terror. He is a great writer.
