#Martin Amis, Author of ‘London Fields’ and ‘Money,’ Dies at 73
Martin Amis, the British author known for novels including Money, London Fields and The Information, has died. He was 73.
His wife, writer Isabel Fonseca, told The New York Times that Amis died Friday at his home in Lake Worth, Florida, following a battle with esophageal cancer.
The news comes as Jonathan Glazer’s film The Zone of Interest, which loosely adapts Amis’ 2014 novel of the same name, premiered at the Cannes Film Festival on Friday to enthusiastic response.
Other film adaptations of his work include the 2018 feature London Fields that starred Billy Bob Thornton, Amber Heard, Jim Sturgess, Theo James, Jason Isaacs and Cara Delevingne. Amis co-wrote the film’s screenplay that was based on his 1989 mystery novel.
Born in Oxford, England, on August 25, 1949, Amis attended Exeter College at the University of Oxford. His first novel, The Rachel Papers (1973), won the Somerset Maugham Award.
His best known works are Money (1984), London Fields (1989) and The Information (1995), with the three novels known as his “London trilogy.” Money was based on Amis’ experience working on the script for Saturn 3, a 1980 sci-fi film starrting Kirk Douglas. A BBC series based on Money aired in 2010 and starred Nick Frost, Vincent Kartheiser, Emma Pierson and Jerry Hall.
Amis also earned acclaim for his nonfiction writing, with his 2000 memoir Experience receiving the James Tait Black Memorial Prize.
His most recent title, an autobiographical novel entitled Inside Story, was published in 2020 and told a fictionalized narrative of his relationships with writers Philip Larkin, Saul Bellow and Christopher Hitchens.
More to come.
