A Brief Chat with Martin Amis
By Simon Taylor.
“I don’t go back to my own stuff. As time gets thinner and shorter, the desire to push on is much stronger. I used to reread myself all the time. I thought a bottle of wine and a five-hour read of me was the ideal evening. But I don’t feel that anymore.”
Martin Amis talks about Lionel Asbo and the technical inferiority of his earlier novels.
