Renowned UK Novelist Martin Amis Passes Away At 73

In 2008, the prestigious Times magazine named him one of the 50 greatest British writers since 1945.

He was one of the “most acclaimed and discussed” authors of the past 50 years. British novelist Martin Amis died on Saturday May 20, 2023.

The information was revealed by several media and the Booker Prizer [the institution awarding the British literary prize, ndlr.] Martin Amis was 73 years old and died in his house in Florida (United States).

Among The Greatest British Writers

Author of Money (1984), London Fields (1989) but also Time’s Arrow (1991) and Yellow Dog (2003), Martin Amis had been crowned by the prestigious Times magazine, which had designated him in 2008 as one of of the 50 greatest British writers since 1945.

He had also been nominated twice for the Booker Prize: the first time in 1991 for Time’s Arrow (1991) and the second for Yellow Dog in 2003. “He won the Somerset Maugham Award for his first novel, The Rachel Papers, in 1973, and the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for his memoir Experience,” the literary institution said in a statement.

In total, Martin Amis’ literary career has included 14 novels, two collections of short stories and eight nonfiction works.

Readers enjoyed his fairly dark stories tinged with black humor, denouncing capitalism and the absurdities of Western society – despite accusations of misogyny and Islamophobia that for a time splattered his image.
