John Self is a consumer extraordinaire.

Rolling between London and New York he closes movie deals and spends feverishly, all the while grabbing everything he can to sate his massive appetites: alcohol, tobacco, pills, pornography and mountains of junk food.

But John's excesses haven't gone unnoted. Menaced by a phone stalker, his high-wire, hoggish lifestyle is about to bring him face-to-face with the secret of his success.

'Terribly, terminally funny: laughter in the dark, if ever I heard it' Guardian

Review quote

"Amis is still the finest English fiction writer of his generation" * Sunday Independent * "An electrifying writer who likes to shock his fans and share his sharply contemporary concerns... Amis is a maddening master you need to read - the best of his generation" * Mail on Sunday * "Amis is immaculate as a comic stylist...irresistible" * Daily Telegraph * "His eloquently rendered inner life shows a richness and tenderness" * The Week * "A comic opera of excess and humiliation, driven by the punch and panache of Amis's extraordinary prose, Money remains as satirically spot-on as when it was first published" * The List *
