520    "From one of the most highly acclaimed writers at work 
       today: his most intimate and epic work yet--an 
       autobiographical novel of sex and love, family and 
       friendship. Inside Story had its birth in the death of 
       Martin Amis's closest friend, the incomparable Christopher
       Hitchens, and it is within that profound and sprawling 
       friendship that the novel unfurls. From their early days 
       as young magazine staffers in London, reviewing romantic 
       entanglements and the latest literary gossip (not to 
       mention ideas, books, and where to lunch), Hitchens was 
       Martin's wingman and adviser, especially in the matter of 
       the alluringly amoral Phoebe Phelps--an obsession Martin 
       must somehow put behind him if he is ever to find love, 
       marriage, a plausible run at happiness. Other significant 
       figures competing as Martin's main influencers are his 
       father, Kingsley, his hero Saul Bellow, the weirdly self-
       finessing poet Philip Larkin, and significant literary 
       women from Iris Murdoch to Elizabeth Jane Howard. Moving 
       among these greats to set his own path, Martin's quest is 
       a tender, witty exploration of the hardest questions: how 
       to live, how to grieve, and how to die. Along the way, he 
       surveys the horrors of the twentieth century, and the 
       still-unfolding impact of the 9/11 attacks on the twenty-
       first--and considers what all of this has taught him about
       how to be a writer. The result is a love letter to life--
       and to the people in his life--that achieves a new level 
       of confidentiality with his readers, giving us the 
       previously unseen portrait of his extraordinary world"--
