Summary
Martin Amis's most highly regarded novel--a blackly comic murder mystery about a murder that has not yet happened--in a full-cloth hardcover edition with silk ribbon marker. EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY CONTEMPORARY CLASSICS. First published twenty-five years ago in 1989, "London Fields" is considered by many to be Amis's best novel. The narrator is an American writer living in London who has had writer's block for twenty years and is now terminally ill. The other main characters are a bored and wealthy banker, a small-time criminal, and Nicola Six, a young woman who knows she will be murdered a few minutes after midnight on November 5, 1999, and who goes in search of her killer. Set ten years in the future, against a backdrop of environmental and social degradation and the looming threat of world instability and nuclear war, this is a highly unusual mystery with an unexpected twist at the end
