  • Warm, generous and deeply moving... This is not only the best book Amis has written in years; it is up there with Money and London Fields as the finest work he's produced.

    Alex Preston, Observer
  • World-class talent... With the life-giving warmth of his brilliant, generous, sometimes unsparing critical writing... Martin Amis is my favorite living writer and Inside Story is his most beautiful book.

    Richard A. Chance, New York Times
  • For my generation of fiction writers, Amis has become like a granite headland, a navigational marker for our collective endeavour. And here...are all the reasons we still love him... Inside Story gives us access to a turbulent, flawed but exceptional writing life.

    Rose Tremain, New Statesman *Books of the Year*
  • Another work of genius to remind us that he is the best... Amis writes better than anyone. What a book!

    Susan Hill, Spectator *Books of the Year*
  • One of Britain's greatest living writers... With each sumptuous sentence he proves his credentials... For fans of his work, Inside Story is a victory lap; newcomers will be steered towards his rich back catalogue.

  • The Mick Jagger of literature... Amis is the most dazzling prose stylist in post-war British fiction.

    Mick Brown, Daily Telegraph
  • Amis's prose, as you should know by now, has a rush and a power that sweeps you along like surf: you're never going to get a sentence that isn't pulling its weight... The scene at Hitchens's deathbed affected me more than anything else I can remember reading.

    Nicholas Lezard, Spectator
  • Inside Story gathers just about every weapon in the writer's armoury... Tender...corrosively witty...swaggeringly funny... It exhilarates.

    Boyd Tonkin, i
  • Highly entertaining.

    Emma Brockes, Guardian
  • Amis's nonpareil sentences brim with warmth, candour, soul... He has generously laid out this all-you-can-eat Amis buffet. Dig in.

    Janice Turner, The Times
