Description: Martin Amis, arguably the most talented writer of his generation, exhibits the vast range of his skill in this startling collection of stories. "Career Move" tells the story of screenwriters struggling for their art, while poets are the darlings of Hollywood. In "Straight Fiction, " the love that dare not speak its name calls out to the hero when he encounters a forbidden object of desire -- the opposite sex. And in "State of England, " Mal, a former "minder to the superstars, " discovers how to live in a country where "class and race and gender were supposedly gone."

In these and half-a-dozen more stories, Amis delights us with his ability to inhabit the bodies and souls of a vast community of characters for whom he is always willing (and more than able) to reshape the world to fit their needs.
