Product Details


“[A] novel that seems to have been written with the term ‘tour de force’ in mind. . . . A brilliant job.”Village Voice Literary Supplement

“A breakthrough . . . etched with acid irony and trickery . . . To submit to [Amis’s] comic tweaking and tickling is to abet the inevitable logic of his assault on our senses. . . .  Time’s Arrow, his tautest and sleekest novel yet, is also his most wide-angled and farsighted. . . . A hard look at our dark age through glittering alien eyes.” Boston Phoenix Literary Section

“A brilliantly imaginative feat.” Mirabella

“Audacious, utterly poised and almost moving . . . the book’s devastatingly sustained black irony stands comparison with Swift’s A Modest Proposal. It is . . . Amis’s finest achievement to date.” Financial Times

“Amis can write prose that is spikily, nervously elegant, full of urgency and surprise.” New York

“Prodigious cleverness. . . . A clever book.” Vogue

“Extraordinary—Ironic inversion is essentially a comic device, but its trickery here yields results that are rigorously grave.” Independent on Sunday

“An icy, hard read – Amis is at his intriguing, powerful and heedful best.” Time Out

“Amis’s most daring and ambitious novel.” Daily Telegraph
