War Against Cliche

Автор: Martin Amis

Короткое описание книги

Is there anything that Martin Amis cant write about? In this virtuosic, career-spanning collection he takes on James Joyce and Elvis Presley, Nabokov and English football, Jane Austen and Penthouse Forum, William Burroughs and Hillary Clinton.

But above all, Amis is concerned with literature, and with the deadly clichesnot only of the pen, but of the mind and the heart.

In The War Against Clich, Amis serves up fresh assessments of the classics and plucks neglected masterpieces off their dusty shelves.

He tilts with Cervantes, Dickens and Milton, celebrates Bellow, Updike and Elmore Leonard, and deflates some of the most bloated reputations of the past three decades.

On every page Amis writes with jaw-dropping felicity, wit, and a subversive brilliance that sheds new light on everything he touches.
