Lionel Pepperdine is the ferocious antihero of Martin Amis’ latest, who proudly changes his surname legally to ASBO—which stands for AntiSocial Behavior Order.” When Lionel wins just under a hundred million pounds in the National Lottery, the Lotto Lout is unleashed as a menace to society. Much of the action is seen through the eyes of Lionel's honest, intelligent, and frighteningly vulnerable mixedrace nephew, Desmond Pepperdine. Desmond has a guilty secret—and powerful reasons to fear his uncle's anger, which he knows to be limitless.
Martin Amis is the author of twelve novels, four collections of stories, and seven collections of nonfiction.
