Founders Great Hall
Haverford College is pleased to welcome author Martin Amis to Founders Great Hall for a reading and conversation, followed by a book signing, on Wednesday, March 5 at 7:30 p.m.
Regarded by many as one of Britain's greatest living authors, two of his works have been listed for the Booker Prize as best novel of the year, Time's Arrow (1991) and Yellow Dog (2003). His memoir, Experience, was awarded the James Tait Black Memorial Prize, Britain's oldest literary award.
His most recent work is Lionel Asbo: State of England. Published in 2012, it was praised by The Guardian as "a great big confidence trick of a novel – an attack that turns into an embrace – a book that looks at us, laughs at us, looks at us harder, closer, and laughs at us harder and still more savagely. It is every inch the novel that we all deserve."
Amis has been in the public eye since 1973 when he published his debut novel, The Rachel Papers. His other books include Money, London Fields, and The Information, all of which explore the complexities of life toward the end of the last century. He is currently at work on a new novel.
