Subject: British novelist Martin Amis dies aged 73

Written By: Philip Eno on 05/20/23 at 2:51 pm

Martin Amis, one of the most celebrated British novelists of his generation, has died aged 73, the New York Times reports.

He died of oesophageal cancer at his Florida home, the paper said, quoting his wife.

Amis is best known for his 1984 novel Money and the 1989 work London Fields.

He authored dozens of novels and non-fiction books, and is widely considered one of the most influential writers of his era.

Born in 1949 in Oxford, he was the son of the novelist and poet Kingsley Amis. The younger Amis followed in his father's footsteps with his first novel, the Rachel Papers.
