- Martin Amis: Between the Influences of Bellow and Nabokov
- This essay explores Amis' "stance toward narrative and examines theinfluence of Saul Bellow and Vladimir Nabokov on Britain's preeminent young novelist. The novelist's 'role' as articulated by Amis is to 'give' meaning rather than to 'discovering' it. Questions about voice, narrative, structure, and epistemology crop up here as well as other issues posed by post modernists."

- Martin Amis: Down London's Mean Streets
- "There is more to Martin Amis, Mira Stout finds in this profile, than the bad-boy reputation he has developed in the London press. She also interviews Amis's father, Kingsley. One of England's original ''angry young men,'' and now a Thatcherite, Kingsley thinks that in many ways Martin is a similar kind of writer."
