Martin Amis recalls a publicity tour of the US, where he is 'OJ'ed' and becomes a 'hireling' of his 'own novel'.
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.
Like many major writers, he has experienced the highs and lows of the mega author tour. Travelling across America these experiences are even more comic and strange. Praised by readers, heckled by fellow authors, bumping into Jack Nicholson, it's never a dull moment as a 'hireling of my own novel'.
