Visiting Mrs. Nabokov: And Other Excursions - new book

ISBN: 9780679757931

ID: 687401858

To this tantalizing nonfiction collection Martin Amis brings the same megawatt wit, wickedly acute perception, and ebullient wordplay that characterize his novels. He encompasses the full range of contemporary politics and culture (high and low) while also traveling to China for soccer with Elton John and to London´s darts-crazy pubs in search of the perfect throw. Throughout, he offers razor-sharp takes on such subjects as: American politics: ´´If history is a nightmare from which we are trying to awake, then the Reagan era can be seen as an eight-year blackout. Numb, pale, unhealthily dreamless: eight years of Do Not Disturb.´´ Chess: ´´Nowhere in sport, perhaps in human activity, is the gap between the tryer and the expert so astronomical.... My chances of a chess brilliancy are the ´chances´ of a lab chimp and a type writer producing King Lear.´´ Visiting Mrs. Nabokov: And Other Excursions Bücher > Fremdsprachige Bücher > Englische Bücher Taschenbuch 01.05.1995 Buch (fremdspr.), Vintage Cookery Books, .199
