Sinopsis: The story of a life lived backwards in time. Its narrator, trapped and hurtling towards a terrible secret, moves "out of the blackest sleep" to find himself surrounded by doctors and on the deathbed of a man in whose body he is imprisoned. The novel was shortlisted for the 1991 Booker Prize.
"Amis's backwards world is rigorously imagined. It is a world of pathos and cruel hilarity - but the crux, the test of his vision, is what he does with Auschwitz" (James Wood Guardian)
"The devastatingly sustained black irony stands comparison with Swift's A Modest Proposal. It is, I think, Amis's finest achievement to date" ( Financial Times)
"Extraordinary - Ironic inversion is essentially a comic device, but its trickery here yields results that are rigorously grave" ( Independent on Sunday)
"An icy, hard read - Amis is at his intriguing, powerful and heedful best" ( Time Out)
"Amis's most daring and ambitious novel" ( Daily Telegraph)
