In his uproarious first novel Martin Amis, author of the bestselling London Fields, gave us one of the most noxiously believable and curiously touching adolescents ever to sniffle and lust his way through the pages of contemporary fiction. On the brink of twenty, Charles High-way preps desultorily for Oxford, cheerfully loathes his father, and meticulously plots the seduction of a girl named Rachel a girl who sorely tests the mettle of his cynicism when he finds himself falling in love with her.
