    Contemporary English Literature - Martin Amis

    Did anybody read Martin Amis' novel, London Fields? What do you think about the space as a motiv in the novel? (Postmodernist way of thinking about space)
    How do you interpret the Title and the Note?

    London Fields? That is funny that is an over ground station in London. That is all I know about it I am afraid.
    it may never try
    but when it does it sigh
    it is just that
    good

    We do feedback on homework thinkings, but not the homework itself. What are your ideas?

    I have read it. I blame it for getting me into bad habits. There was a copy of it in the local art coffee shop. I'd read a section of it there. Then I noticed there was a copy of it in a pub in town, so I'd go in there and read a bit over a pint. Both businesses have since closed down. On another forum, someone suggested that Blur's song, Park Life was inspired by the book. That intrigued me to read it, although I never picked up on the reference. I liked the book because it was very nasty.
    According to Aldous Huxley, D.H. Lawrence once said that Balzac was 'a gigantic dwarf', and in a sense the same is true of Dickens.

    It isn't a homework. Only I was thinking about this, because it was difficult for me to understand. I don'r realy understand the Note at the beginning of the novel, but I think that it is a key to understand it.... but I don't know why

    Yes, he is really unheroic. And what do you think about London? I was never there, and so I have no base to compare with

    The title to me refers to a place in London.
    The note do you have a copy of it?
