NEW YORK — British novelist Martin Amis, who brought a rock ‘n’ roll sensibility to his stories and lifestyle, has died. He was 73 years old.
His death from esophageal cancer was confirmed by his agent, Andrew Wylie, on Saturday. Amis died Friday at his home in Florida, Wylie said.
Amis was the son of another British writer, Kingsley Amis. Martin Amis was a leading voice among a generation of writers that included his good friend, the late Christopher Hitchens, Ian McEwan and Salman Rushdie.
Among his best-known works are ‘Money’, a satire on consumerism in London, ‘The Information’ and ‘London Fields’, as well as his 2000 memoir, ‘Experience’.
Jonathan Glazer’s adaptation of Friends’ 2014 novel “The Zone of Interest” premiered at the Cannes Film Festival on Saturday. The film, about a Nazi commander who lives next door to Auschwitz with his family, drew some of the best reviews at the festival.
