    A bullet train of a novel that barrels deep into the heart of darkness that was the Soviet gulag. In 1946, two brothers and a Jewish girl fall into alignment in pogrom-poised Moscow. The fraternal conflict then marinates in Norlag, a slave-labor camp above the Arctic Circle, where a tryst in the coveted House of Meetings will haunt all three lovers long after the brothers are released. And for the narrator, the sole survivor, the reverberations continue into the new century. Almost roll over Tolstoy! 256p.

    Martin Amis's murder story for the end of the millenium. 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 the rich, honorable, and dimly romantic Guy Clinch. And as Nicola leads her suitors toward the precipice, London - and, indeed, the entire world - seems to shamble after them, in a corrosively funny narrative of pyrotechnic complexity and scalding morals vision. 470p.

    Terry is short, dumpy, and terminally lust-lorn. Greg is posh, handsome, and universally desired. In this deliriously funny pressure cooker of a novel, Martin Amis pens these mismatched foster brothers in a single flat, binds them withties of class hatred, sexual rivalry, and disappointed love, and throws in a disloyal girlfriend and a spectacularly unstable sister to create a modern-day Jacobean revenge comedy whose trajectory approaches that of malicious poetry. 224p.

    In his uproarious first novel, Martin Amis gives readers one of the most noxiously believable - and curiously touching - adolescents ever to sniffle and lust his way through the pages of contemporary fiction. On the brink of twenty, Charles Highway preps desultorily for Oxford, cheerfully loathes his father, and meticulously plots the seduction of a girl named Rachel - a girl who sorely tests the mettle of his cynicism when he finds himself falling in love with her.

    "From one of England's most renowned authors, an unforgettable new novel that provides a searing portrait of life-and, shockingly, love-in a concentration camp. Once upon a time there was a king, and the king commissioned his favorite wizard to create amagic mirror. This mirror didn't show you your reflection. It showed you your soul-it showed you who you really were. The wizard couldn't look at it without turning away. The king couldn't look at it. The courtiers couldn't look at it. A chestful of treasure was offered to anyone who could look at it for sixty seconds without turning away. And no one could. The Zone of Interest is a love story with a violently unromantic setting. Can love survive the mirror? Can we even meet each other's eye, after we have seen who we really are? In a novel powered by both wit and pathos, Martin Amis excavates the depths and contradictions of the human soul"--

    In this exuberantly vicious take on the malaise of the new century, Xan Meo, Renaissance man and model husband is transformed into a Neanderthal by a blow to the head. As he devolves, his path will converge with those of King Henry IX of England, who is trying to suppress a video-taped 'bathtub intrusion' of his fifteen-year-old daughter, and Clint Smoker, a tabloid journalist whose aptitude for sexual scandalmongering stands in inverse ratio to his aptitude for sex.As these characters, their dependents, retainers, and nemeses lust, threaten, and conspire, YELLOW DOG becomes deliriously entertaining and deeply serious. 340p.
