Martin Amis

Martin Amis is the author of 14 novels, most recently The Zone of Interest and Lionel Asbo; the memoir Experience; two collections of stories; and six works of nonfiction. He lives in Brooklyn, New York. He was the Professor of Creative Writing at the Centre for New Writing at the University of Manchester but stepped down at the end of the 2010/11 academic year. In 2008 the Times of London named him as one of the 50 greatest British writers since 1945.
 

"When the sky is as grey as this — impeccably grey, a denial, really of the very concept of colour — and the stooped millions lift their heads, it's hard to tell the air from the impurities in our human eyes, as if the sinking climbing paisley curlicues of grit were part of the element itself, rain, spores, tears, film, dirt. Perhaps, at such moments, the sky is no more then the sum of the dirt that lives in our human eyes."

– Martin Amis, Money
