Martin Amis

British novelist and critic
The literary interview won't tell you what a writer is like. Far more compellingly to some, it will tell you what a writer is like to interview.More Martin Amis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Love is an abstract noun, something nebulous. And yet love turns out to be the only part of us that is solid, as the world turns upside down and the screen goes black.More Martin Amis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I sometimes feel I'm a sort of cult writer, rather than a mainstream writer, in that those who like my stuff like it a lot, but the appeal is not that broad.More Martin Amis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Suicide is what everyone young thinks they'll do before they get old. But they hardly ever get round to it. They just don't want to commit themselves in that way. When you're young and you look ahead, time ends in mist at twenty-five. 'Old won't happen to me', you say. But old does. Oh, old does. Old always gets you in the end.More Martin Amis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Amis is acutely, vibrantly sensitive to the different registers of laughter. He knows that it can be the most affirming and uniquely human sound, and also the most sinister and animalistic one. He understands every note of every octave that separates the liberating shout of mirth from the cackle of a bully or the snigger of a sadist.More Martin Amis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
