Paris Review - The Art of Fiction No. 151, Martin Amis
If I die tomorrow, well, at least my children, who are approaching as we speak, at least they will have a very good idea of what I was like, of what my mind was like, because they will be able to read my books.

The Information: Author of London Fields and Time's Arrow - Martin Amis - Google Books
He had never been to America. And he would tell you that quite frankly, raising his pentimento eyebrows and tensing his upper lip with a certain laconic pride.

If Richard had chortled his way through Summertown, he cackled and yodeled his way through Amelior: its cuteness, its blandness, its naively pompous semicolons, its freedom from humor and incident, its hand-me-down imagery, the almost endearing transparency of its little color schemes, its Tinkertoy symmetries . . . # I am soooo guilty of "pompous semicolons"

The Millions : The Arcades Project: Martin Amis’ Guide to Classic Video Games
"As a novelist, his ludic delight in finding new ways of playing with language — new ways of narrowing the ever-descending phalanx of cliché — is palpable in every sentence. So for all its contextual aberrance, this strange and disreputable book actually makes a certain kind of warped sense. And if for some reason you happen to be looking for a guide to arcade games of the early 1980s, you could probably do a lot worse." I knew of the book already - but this is a striking look at it.

"PacMan player, be not proud, nor too macho, and you will prosper on the dotted screen."
A fascinating look inside a disowned and ultra-rare early book by Martin Amis: a guide to video games.
