If You Like Martin Amis Books, You’ll Love…

Money is Amis’ most popular novel and the first in the London Trilogy. The book tells the story of John Self, one of the top commercial director’s in London, who is given the chance to make a feature film. The movie is alternately titled Good Money and Bad Money, and as he’s making it he’s talking money and spending money to get the job done. Self finds himself circling down a spiral of degeneracy with of drinking, sex, drugs, and excessive quantities of fast food, and finds it increasingly hard to escape from this life.

Amis is also the author of The Zone of Interest. This book is set as a love story, but takes place in a wholly unromantic and depressing setting. The story tells three interwoven stories of Thomsen, Doll and Szmul from the perspective of the holocaust camps. The story is difficult for many, but the tale of Germans who are running the camp and the rubber factory attached to it falling in love is a rewarding and powerful read.
