We were talking about Zadie [Smith, Laird’s wife] loving Larkin, and Nick said, “All novelists love Larkin.” That resonated for me, and when I came to write that piece I saw just how true it was . Martin Amis sails through this book on the crest of a valiant wave of anger almost angelic in its intensity. It saturates the entire work as he spits out the now-familiar facts, made fresh through his horror--the countries decimated, the tortured confessions multiplied into the millions, the planned starvation, the conversion of a once-viable nation into a giant slaughterhouse.

      Martin Amis goes on a rant about Lenin and the Soviet Union in the New York rants go, it’s top drawer. Enjoy for the verbal fireworks. He begins: “It was a very bad idea from the outset, and one forced into life — or the life of the undead — with barely imaginable self-righteousness, pedantry, dynamism, and horror. Martin Amis’ photobook The Gamblers is the culmination of his long-term project photographing at racecourses across the South of England. The Gamblers is an affectionate portrait of the racing crowd, a well-informed tribe of racing enthusiasts, from a quirky mix of class and social backgrounds, who come together to find the next winner.
