Summary of Money Summary of Money Reviews for Money An Excerpt from Money
Hailed as "a sprawling, fierce, vulgar display" (The New Republic) and "exhilarating, skillful, savvy" (The Times Literary Supplement) when it made its first appearance in the mid- 1980s, Money is Martin Amis's hilarious portrait of one man's relentless pursuit of pleasure.

 
“Martin Amis’s vibrantly dark 1985 novel, Money, gave us a rollicking, repulsive picture of London and New York in the late 20th century, awash in cash, corruption, pornography, junk food, junk art, self-promotion and wretched excess of every imaginable variety. More than two and a half decades later that novel’s scabrous vision of a crude, rude world reeling from narcissism and acquisitiveness seems as potent as ever. Its hilariously awful hero, John Self, is an uncanny harbinger of the willful vulgarians who would gain even more ascendancies in the reality-show, greed-is-great era of the 21st century.”
—Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times

 
“Savagely hilarious. It risks, it boils with energy . . . it even manages to shock.”
—Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post Book World
