What is the only provocation that could bring about the use of nuclear weapons? Nuclear weapons. What is the priority target for nuclear weapons? Nuclear weapons. What is the only established defense against nuclear weapons? Nuclear weapons. How do we prevent the use of nuclear weapons? By threatening the use of nuclear weapons. And we can't get rid of nuclear weapons, because of nuclear weapons. The intransigence, it seems, is a function of the weapons themselves.More Martin Amis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

I wonder how this contributes to the dreamlife of America, a dreamlife that is so deep and troubled.More Martin Amis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I think a lot of people who read fiction are interested in subtlety. But they wouldn't like my stuff. It's a bit too violent for many tastes.More Martin Amis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
