Synopses & Reviews
London Fields is Amis's murder story for the end of the millennium. 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 is the killer the rich, honorable, and dimly romantic Guy Clinch?
A comic murder mystery, an apocalyptic satire, a scatological meditation on love and death and nuclear winter...by turns lyrical and obscene, colloquial and rhapsodic.--Michiko Kakutani, New York Times
