Hailed as "a sprawling, fierce, vulgar display" (The New Republic) and "exhilarating, skillful, savvy" (The Times Literary Supplement) when it made its first appearance in the mid- 1980s, Money is Martin Amis's hilarious portrait of one man's relentless pursuit of pleasure.
Martin Amis has created a thoroughly unlikable hero, John Self--movie producer, drunk, drugged exploiter of woman--and managed to make him into a sympathetic narrator. In addition to pursuing his vices with enthusiasm, Self spends his time roaming New York in order to find funding and actors for his latest epic and wondering whether his girlfriend back in London is being faithful.
