Martin Amis's England

Novelist Martin Amis, a fierce critic of contemporary society, examines his experience of Englishness from sex and binge drinking to football hooliganism and multiculturalism.

Novelist Martin Amis, a fierce critic of contemporary society, examines his experience of Englishness. Richly illustrated with archive footage, he reflects on a nation barely recovered from the loss of empire. Amis brings a sharp, humorous and surprisingly affectionate touch to the exploration of sex, binge drinking, football hooliganism, the idea of fair play, multiculturalism, the royal family and the tabloid press.
