• Warm, generous and deeply moving, whether on the subject of fatherhood, love or friendship (particularly with Christopher Hitchens). 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
  • 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
  • Consistently intelligent and compulsively readable... [Amis] applies his insight and curiosity as a novelist to this stylish and genuine account of his development as a writer. The result reaches the heights of his finest work.

    Publishers Weekly *STARRED REVIEW*
  • Profoundly moving... If Experience was Amis elucidating the visible events of his life, the one-10th of the iceberg sitting above the waterline, then this book is a dark and tender exploration of the part that lies submerged.

    Richard Strachan, Herald Scotland
  • You really feel that in this book you are getting to the heart of one of the most remarkable writers of our time.

    Jake Kerridge, Sunday Express
