Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This collection of stories is prefaced with an essay on the nuclear threat so trenchant and irrefutable that the book is worth reading for that alone.
From the Publisher
“In five cataclysmic stories Amis creates perplexing visions of a post-nuclear-holocaust world, highlighting schizophrenia, rape, brutality and suppurating despair.” — Daily Mail

What People are Saying About This

Carolyn See
[A character says]". . . I swear, the entire planet seemed to be staging some kind of stupidity contest.'' And it's that point of view that informs all of Einstein's Monsters. . . .A word about Mr. Amis's style: it's rough, new-seeming, laconic, lower-class, insolent, careless. . . .[he] has created stories that please at least as much as they horrify. -- The New York Times,/i>
