Description

London Fields is Amis's murder story for the end of the millennium"a comic murder mystery, an apocalyptic satire, a scatological meditation on love and death" (The New York Times).

The murderee is Nicola Six, a "black hole" of sex and self-loathing intent on orchestrating her own extinction. The murderer may be Keith Talent, a violent lowlife whose only passions are pornography and darts. Or is the killer the rich, honorable, and dimly romantic Guy Clinch?

Here, Amis is "by turns lyrical and obscene, colloquial and rhapsodic." —Michiko Kakutani
