Again with the Bragging

I haven’t even read Martin Amis’ new novel, House of Meetings, yet, and already he’s talking to Reuters about how much we’ll hate the next one:

“It’s not that far from being finished, so it’s long-ish and very autobiographical and very indiscreet and it will be much hated, and I will be, again.”

Why will we hate Amis and his book?

“There are very recognizable people in it. It’s a sort of celebrity novel but high-brow.

“Mostly what it is is women . . . you know, how it went with women. It’s very much about a period of history I lived through, which is the entire sex revolution starting in the 60s coming up to now. The title is The Pregnant Widow. It’s a Russian-inspired title.”
