Read in June, 1995

I like some of Amis's book and he knows how to write a dazzling sentence, but this is a book full of mean spirited characters and a snobbishness towards the working class that predates the "chav" phenomenon by almost twenty years. Keith Talent, lauded in some quarters as a brilliantly drawn depiction of a oafish bully, is infact one of the most one dimensional and cliched characters I have come across in modern literature. Read "Money" instead.
