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.

Lover of ideas who feels no guilt at all about her pleasures.
I love Martin Amis but he's a much better read than a listen. His prose is too dense and his stories to intricate to be part of an audio multi-task. Do yourself a favor and read this one to yourself.
I want to be able to read Martin Amis. He is a wonderful writer. His great friend, the sorely missed Christopher Hitchens, has been the cause of my purchasing two of his, Martin's, unreadable books. Martin, this reader needs someone in a narrative that I can stand. A lot of frightful sex doesn't do it for me. And I am sorry.
