The acclaimed New York Times best seller London Fields tells the story of a love triangle, a bizarre tangle of love, lust, and murder. At its apex stands one of the great antiheroines of modern fiction, the supreme femme fatale Nicola Six. Since she was a little girl, her clairvoyant powers have shown her her own death. But instead of surrendering to her fate, she decides to direct it herself by fashioning 3 men into her killers. The death of Nicola combines with the death of love, mankind, the century, and even the text itself in this wickedly sarcastic and explosively chaotic ride. Download and start listening now!

    " I re-read this the other day for no particular reason. He obviously has quite a way with language but I'm not sure I'm buying what he's selling here. "

    " A gleefully vicious piece of misanthropy, this book is one of the important books, on a personal level, to my life. A complex, supremely ambitious concoction, Amis here challenges narrative structure and technique to such a par excellent degree that he actually forms his own genre: the second person metaphysical suicide note, or some such rot that makes no sense from even an aesthetic standpoint. However, Amis is far more enjoyable and not nearly so pretentious as many of his critics, and London Fields works on so many different levels: comedy, pornography, sociology, sports and local customs study, murder mystery, tragedy, epitaph, looney farce--all here, most of it working in synq. A remarkable novel. "

    " from my 1995 notebook: audacious, exuberant, often accurate, but a scummy book, too baggy, too self-obsessed, too cartoonish "
