From his new collection of non-fiction (1986-2016), Martin Amis recalls some great hitters during his tennis playing days, and why eventually he gave up the beautiful game.
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.
