Description - Visiting Mrs Nabokov And Other Excursions by Martin Amis

Fuelled by innumerable cigarettes, Martin Amis provides dazzling portraits of contemporaries and mentors alike- Larkin and Rushdie; Greene and Pritchett; Ballard and Burgess and Nicholson Baker; John Updike - warts and all. Vigorously zipping across to Washington, he exposes the double-think of nuke-speak; in New Orleans the Republican Convention gets a going over. And then there's sport- he visits the world of darts and its disastrous attempt to clean itself up; dirty tricks in the world of chess; and some brisk but vicious poker with Al Alvarez and David Mamet. Sex without Madonna, expulsion from school, a Stones gig that should have been gagged, on set with Robocop or on court with Gabriela Sabatini, this is Martin Amis at his electric best.

Buy Visiting Mrs Nabokov And Other Excursions by Martin Amis from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
