Heavy Water and Other Stories

by Martin Amis

Sharp, stylish, sick and slick - Amis can push a comic inversion as far as it can go and then some more. You'll need a strong stomach and you won't know whether to laugh or wince!


He spoke bad too - he knew it. But all that predjudice against people such as himself was gone now. Or so they said. And maybe they were partly right. Mal could go to virtually any restaurant he liked, and sit there surrounded by all those types squawking and honking away, and pick up a tab as clear as an air ticket. And yet no-one could guarantee he would feel okay in this or that place.
