Martin Amis

novelist

British novelist Martin Amis is perhaps best known for his novels London Field and Money. He was educated at various schools including Swansea Grammar School and Cambridgeshire High School for Boys, where one of his many headmasters described Amis’s talent as “unusually unpromising.” When Amis was twelve his parents divorced and Amis attributes much of his early inspiration and creative insight to his step-mother, who first tore him away from comics and introduced him to Jane Austen. Thanks to his illustrious career as an author, Amis has gone on to influence many upcoming and influential writers, such as Zadie Smith and Will Self.
