The Rachel Papers

by Martin Amis

Category: Fiction / General
Publisher: Vintage
Publication date: 13 August 2003
Number of pages: 224
Prizes: Winner of Somerset Maugham Award 1974.

Charles Highway, a precociously intelligent and highly sexed teenager, is determined to sleep with an older woman before he turns twenty. Rachel fits the bill perfectly and Charles plans his seduction meticulously, sets the scene with infinite care - but it doesn't come off quite as Charles expects...

What the papers say:
"Amis has brought off the feat of satirizing his contemporaries while making them both funny and, in a bizarre way, moving" Peter Ackroyd "Scurrilous, shameless and very funny" Time Literary Supplement "Extravagantly sexual-highly enjoyable" Evening Standard "Amis's arrogantly assured manner is a formidable weapon, spraying the target with disdainful wit, ingenious obscenity, astute literariness, loathing, lust, anxiety and an all-pervading hyper-self-consciousness" Observer

Author's Biography:
Martin Amis is the author of thirteen novels, the memoir Experience, two collections of stories and six collections of non-fiction, most recently The Second Plane. He lives in New York.
