Abstract

This essay reads Amis’s Success, Money, and The Information within the context of the contemporary publishing industry, to reveal how this trajectory of novels self-reflexively engages with the production of Amis as a literary celebrity. In each of these works, Amis appropriates the stylistic modes of celebrity production practiced by his modernist predecessors, borrowing from modernism’s cultural capital while adapting it for the contemporary corporate publishing industry. In the process, this essay argues, the fiction self-reflexively negotiates the production of Martin Amis as authorial brand.
