Martin amis's money: Negotiations with Literary Celebrity


This essay reads Amis's Success, Money, and The Information within the context of the contemporary publishing industry, to reveal how this trajectory of novels selfreflexively engages with the production of Amis as a literary celebrity. In each of these works, Amis appropriates the stylistic modes of celebrity production practiced by his modernist predecessors, borrowing from modernism's cultural capital while adapting it for the contemporary corporate publishing industry. In the process, this essay argues, the fiction selfreflexively negotiates the production of Martin Amis as authorial brand.
