London Fields is Martin Amis’ murder story for the end of the millennium. The murderee is Nicola Six, a “black hole” of sex and self-loathing who is intent on orchestrating her own extinction. The murderer may be Keith Talent, a violent lowlife whose only passions are pornography and darts, or the rich, honorable, and dimly romantic Guy Clinch. As Nicola leads her suitors towards the precipice, London—and, indeed, the whole world—seems to shamble after them in a corrosively funny novel of complexity and morality.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“An uninhibited high-energy performance…[Amis] is one of the most gifted novelists of his generation.” Time
“A comic murder mystery, an apocalyptic satire, a scatological meditation on love and death and nuclear winter…By turns lyrical and obscene, colloquial and rhapsodic.” New York Times
“Relentlessly bitter, often brutally funny, hypnotically readable.” Publishers Weekly
“A cunning suspense tale of physical and psychic mayhem…A darkly comic liebestod…Another caustic portrayal of human desires…this time heightened by a more deeply sinister and squalid atmosphere.” Booklist
