Martin Amis dead 

British Author Martin Amis has passed away at the age of 73 after a prolonged battle with oesophageal cancer. He is survived by his wife Isabel Fonseca. 

Born in 1949 in Oxford, Amis was the son of the novelist and poet Sir Kingsley Amis. He followed his father’s suit after graduating from Oxford University with his first novel The Rachel Papers.

Money, his 1984 novel, was named by Robert McCrum in the Guardian as among the 100 best novels written in English. He added: “The thrill of Money, which is turbo-charged with savage humour from first to last page, is Amis’s prodigal delight in the contemporary Anglo-American vernacular.”

‘The Zone of Interest 

His novel ‘The Zone of Interest’ has been adapted by British Director for a film which is currently winning applauds at the Cannes Film Festival. 

“The novel is an incredibly intimate portrait of a writer,” Amis once told the BBC, looking back at his career. “Although I am not an autobiographical writer, I am all over my books.”
