Martin Amis on Thacker Mountain Radio with THE RUB OF TIME The definitive collection of essays and reportage written during the past thirty years from one of most provocative and widely read writers—with new commentary by the author. For more than thirty years, Martin Amis has turned his keen intellect and unrivaled prose loose on an astonishing range of topics—politics, sports, celebrity, America, and, of course, literature. Now, at last, these incomparable essays have been gathered together. Here is Amis at the 2011 GOP Iowa Caucus, where, squeezed between “windbreakers and woolly hats,” he pores over The Ron Paul Family Cookbook and laments the absence of “our Banquo,” Herman Cain. He writes about finally confronting the effects of aging on his athletic prowess. He revisits, time and time again, the worlds of Bellow and Nabokov, his “twin peaks,” masters who have obsessed and inspired him. Brilliant, incisive, and savagely funny, The Rub of Time is a vital addition to any Amis fan’s bookshelf, and the perfect primer for readers discovering his fierce and tremendous journalistic talents for the first time. About the Author Martin Amis is the author of fourteen novels, the memoir Experience, two collections of stories, and six previous nonfiction books. He lives in Brooklyn. Event date: Thursday, March 22, 2018 - 6:00pm Event address: 129 Courthouse Square Oxford, MS 38655
