The scintillating collection of essays, reportage, and criticism by one of the most provocative and widely read novelists of our time--with new commentary by the author.

As a journalist, critic, and novelist, Martin Amis has always turned his keen intellect and unrivaled prose loose on an astonishing range of topics--politics, sports, celebrity, America, and, of course, literature. Collected here is some of his best nonfiction work from over two decades. Amis writes about finally confronting the effects of aging on his athletic prowess. He revisits the worlds of Bellow and Nabokov, his "twin peaks," masters who have obsessed and inspired him. And he turns his piercingly observant eye on Donald Trump, whom he finds "scowling out from under an omelette of makeup" in the run-up to the 2016 Republican Convention, and at a post-election rally, regarding his crowd of supporters with a "flat sneer of Ozymandian hauteur."

Overflowing with startling and singular turns of phrase, and complete with new commentary by the author, The Rub of Time is a vital addition to any bookshelf, and the perfect primer for readers discovering Amis's fierce talents for the first time.
