Martin Amis, Christopher Hitchens
Hay Festival 2000
John Updike writes of novels: 'Amis is trying to construct a large, reaching, ambitious set of books - trying to cover the world in fiction'. In his autobiographical portrait ExperienceAmis writes about his father, his writing, his cousin Lucy Partington who was murdered by the Wests and the literary world. He talks to the journalist Christopher Hitchens.
