Martin Amis

Martin Amis at the 2014 Texas Book Festival Martin Louis Amis (born 25 August 1949) is an English novelist. His best-known novels are ''Money'' (1984) and ''London Fields'' (1989). He has received the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for his memoir ''Experience'' and has been listed for the Booker Prize twice to date (shortlisted in 1991 for ''Time's Arrow'' and longlisted in 2003 for ''Yellow Dog''). Amis served as the Professor of Creative Writing at the Centre for New Writing at the University of Manchester until 2011. In 2008, ''The Times'' named him one of the 50 greatest British writers since 1945.

Amis's work centres on the apparent excesses of late-capitalist Western society, whose perceived absurdity he often satirises through grotesque caricature; he has been portrayed as a master of what the ''New York Times'' called "the new unpleasantness". Inspired by Saul Bellow, Vladimir Nabokov, and James Joyce, as well as by his father Kingsley Amis, Amis himself went on to influence many successful British novelists of the late 20th and early 21st centuries, including Will Self and Zadie Smith.
