Marie and Martin Amis

I know she's feeling a bit post-book blues at the mo, but rifling the backlog of unread Marie posts from her blog I did chuckle at this gem:
I have never read anything by Martin Amis. As longer-term readers of the blog know, I wouldn't be able to pick him out of a police line-up if the other participants were Jordan, Kermit the Frog, and a mule. Anyway I was in the mood for something London-y having read two African books recently, and I thought it was about time I found out whether I am an Amis-lover or an Amis-hater (I don't believe that it is possible to be Amis-indifferent.) Sadly, I have checked inside and outside covers but there is no photo of Martin Amis.

As you know, Marie is a restricted access blog now but this was too priceless a remark. Bless her. Now, if you haven't already, go and read "Gods Behaving Badly".

Thanks Lisa. I am going to a very glam book party tonight, actually, where there is a decent chance of Martin Amis rocking up, but obviously I won't be able to tell you whether he is there or not...
