You Ask the Questions

In You Ask the Questions, from his collection of non-fiction (1986-2016), Martin Amis answers questions about Kingsley, his early film acting, smoking roll-ups and other things.

Martin Amis is one of the most celebrated authors of modern times. A new collection rounds up his non-fiction pieces from 1986 to 2016, and this week five compelling topics are aired.

Some time back one of our national newspapers held a Q&A on the page with the author. Questions ranged from the serious to the odd, including views on father Kingsley, the hassle of smoking roll-ups, his child acting days and.. 'what question have you never been asked?'

Questioners Sarah Ridgeway, Tom Forrester, and Charlie Clements.
