From the celebrated author of London Fields come these 8 unforgettable and imaginative short stories. Career Move is a through-the-looking glass romp in a world where poets are top dogs fawned over by executives and paid handsomely for their work, while screenwriters are domed to near-obscurity. What Happened to Me on My Holiday created a stir in The New Yorker because of its extraordinary voice exploring a child's first understanding of nature, death, and humanity. Other stories include: Denton's Death, Heavy Water, Straight Fiction, Let Me Count the Times, The Coincidence of the Arts, and State of England. Download and start listening now!

    " His humor is like...I dunno. There's one story about this guy whose wife lets him sodomize her exactly once a year on his birthday. Amis then spends the rest of the story generating hundreds of statistics in regards to various aspects of their sex life. And I dunno. It's just funny. "

    " I find Martin Amis disgusting, but not all the stories in this one were, and some of the cleverness I have to admit I enjoyed. "
