Martians, Monsters, and Madonnas:
Fiction and Form in the World of Martin Amis (Studies in Twentieth-Century
British Literature, Vol. 2). Book description from amazon.com: "The burgeoning
postmodern condition forces a reevaluation of the novel as a form; contemporary
formlessness has created a new and seemingly endless range of interpretations
under which the forms of the past coalesce. Martin Amis, whose novels and
stories 'live' this phenomenon and inform this study, has discovered an
art form in the literature of decay, where traditional fictional elements,
such as time, voice and motivation, have been corrupted by the twentieth
century and the revitalized anti-novel. Style has overcome story in the
world of Martin Amis--and perhaps in the 'real' world as well."
