Review: Lionel Asbo, State of England

If you aren’t an Amis fan, Lionel Asbo may not be the best book for you to get into him. It has neither the ambitiousness and formal ingenuity of Money and London Fields, nor the flat-out, irony-dripping, scabrous satire of his early work (The Rachel Papers, Success, Dead Babies).
