Visiting Mrs Nabokov ePUB î Visiting Mrs MOBI

Fuelled by innumerable cigarettes Martin Amis provides dazzling portraits of contemporaries and mentors alike Larkin and Rushdie Greene and Pritchett Ballard and Burgess and Nicholson Baker John Updike warts and all Vigorously zipping across to Washington he exposes the double think of nuke speak in New Orleans the Republican Convention gets a going over And then there's sport he visits the world of darts and its disastrous attempt to clean itself up dirty tricks in the world of chess and some brisk but vicious poker with Al Alvarez and David MametSex without Madonna expulsion from school a Stones gig that should have been gagged on set with Robocop or on court with Gabriela Sabatini this is Martin Amis at his electric best

    Martin Amis writing jazzy restrained well informed and right minded journalism about the titular Mrs VN nuclear lunacy the making of Robocop II nude sunbathing at Cannes darts snooker poker getting expelled John Updike John Lennon Elton John's soccer team's trip to China in flight turbulence Nicholson Baker Phillip Larkin underhanded bouts of chess between Kasparov and Kaparov Salman Rushdie Saul Bellow and the weird world of Republican primary buffoonery what's not to love? Whether writing about being snubbed by Madonna or taking Roman Polanski to task for being a dirty old pervert Amis always makes for a compulsive voice to read
