John (""Slick'') Self, 35, is the hero of Amis's fifth novel. He directs bosomy fast-food commercials, drives a purple Fiasco, has several very different lovers and travels frequently between London, New York and Los Angeles. Among the many laughable weirdos Amis introduces, only the verbally hyperventilating Slick seems credible. PW commented: ``Though it sprawls a bit, Money achieves a roiling, raunchy idiom that is exuberantly tuned to a contemporary beat, consummately literate and fun to read.'' (March)
