Martin Amis, a British author best known for his books “Money” and “London Fields,” died at 73. He was clever and darkly hilarious. His wife, author Isabel Fonseca, informed The New York Times on Saturday that he had passed away and provided the cause of de@th as esophageal c@ncer.
After a lengthy literary career, Amis passed away on Friday at his Lake Worth, Florida home. 15 books, including “Time’s Arrow” (1991) and “The Information” (1995), were written by him.
The renowned author once stated in The New York Times Book Review that his goal was “to create a high style to describe low things.”
In the 1985 interview, he stated, “I’m often accused of concentrating on the pungent, rebarbative side of life in my books, but I feel I’m rather sentimental about it.” “Anyone who reads the tabloid papers will rub up against much greater horrors than I describe.”

Amis, who also published two story collections, seven nonfiction books, and seven fiction novels, was frequently mocked for his outspoken statements and his purportedly racy personal life in the media.

The author, born on August 25, 1949, in Oxford, England, had traveled much before he was 18 because of his father’s job. Ironically, according to The Times, he was “pretty illiterate” until he was 17 when his stepmother encouraged him to read Jane Austen.
Later, in 1971, he earned his degree from Exeter College in Oxford and began a string of editorial jobs in London. Although he had traits of his late literary father, Kingsley Amis, they frequently disagreed, but he had an advantage since he was a writer’s kid.
In 1973, he released “The Rachel Papers,” his debut book, after spending a year crafting the sexually explicit material. Two years later, he published “Dead Babies,” a darkly humorous work of fiction that described the drug use and sex lives of a group of young people.
He published “Dead Babies” as a follow-up two years later. His highly regarded book, “Money” (1984), was included in Time Magazine’s first list of “the 100 best English-language novels published since 1923.”
