How can one writer hurt another where it really counts? This is the problem facing novelist Richard Tull, contemplating the success of his friend and rival Gwyn Barry. Revenger's tragedy, comedy of errors, contemporary satire, The Information is an extraordinary novel of dark humour and piercing insight.
"A book of brilliant energies, a comedy of enraged passions. Amis's writing shares the grandeur of the big American writers" -- Malcolm Bradbury The Times "Any other writer would kill to reach this high style. Amis can stroll the heights at his leisure - the writing is on fire" -- Allison Pearson "Martin Amis is an iconic figure. He cracks out memorable sentences like a ringmaster in the circus of the grotesque. He is the good-looking bad guy of late-twentieth-century Eng Lit - faster on the phrase than any of the other inky cowboys on the streets" -- Melvyn Bragg "Amis has made previous incursions into the grubby end of Ladbroke Grove and the infection of urban self-pity. But he's never been quite so funny about it" Independent "Young men adore Martin Amis and older ones envy him. Many imitate him. Many want to be him. He can be cool and raw, smart and cool. He's sexy, but that's not all. Now we want the Information" -- Nicci Gerrard Observer
