Lionel Asbo

by Martin Amis | 15 August 2019
Synopsis
Lionel Asbo has just won £139,999,999.50 on the Lottery. A horribly violent, but horribly unsuccessful criminal, Lionel's attentions up to now have all been on his nephew, Desmond Pepperdine. He showers him with fatherly advice ('carry a knife') and introduces Des to the joys of internet porn. Meanwhile, Des desires nothing more than books, a girl to love and to steer clear Uncle Li's psychotic pitbulls, Joe and Jeff. But Lionel's winnings are not necessarily all good news. For Des has a secret, and its discovery could unleash his uncle's implacable vengeance. 'One of Amis's funniest novels' New Yorker 'A book that looks at us, laughs at us, looks at us harder, closer, and laughs at us harder and still more savagely' Observer
