In this Readers' Guide, Nicolas Tredell explores the critical judgements and interpretations generated by Amis's novels and short stories over the past quarter of a century. Drawing on reviews, essays, interviews and books, it brings together material on Amis which has never previously been collected and provides the most wide-ranging examination of his fiction so far, considering key issues such as his use of language, his concern with time, apocalypse and corruption, his relation to modernity and postmodernity, his representation of women and sexuality, and his treatment of the Holocaust.
