Martin Amis

British novelist and critic
Faith is a talent, and it goes the way of all your talents. Getting old is the subtraction of your powers. Which very much goes for writing.More Martin Amis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Belief is otiose; reality is sufficiently awesome as it stands.More Martin Amis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It's not that you get a cliché and then wiggle it about or use synonyms. You don't take an ordinary decorative paragraph and give it style. What you're trying to do is be faithful to your perceptions and transmit them as faithfully as you can. I say these sentences until they sound right. There's no objective reason why they're right. They just sound right to me.More Martin Amis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Cities at night, I feel, contain men who cry in their sleep and then say Nothing. It's nothing. Just sad dreams. Or something like that...Swing low in your weep ship, with your tear scans and sob probes, and you would mark them. Women--and they can be wives, lovers, gaunt muses, fat nurses, obsessions, devourers, exes, nemeses--will wake and turn to these men and ask, with female need-to-know, "What is it?" And the men will say, "Nothing. No it isn't anything really. Just sad dreams.More Martin Amis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I think all writers have a bit of genius in them, and a bit of talent. Genius retreats but talent improves.More Martin Amis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
