Publisher Description

Once upon a time there was a king, and the king commissioned his favorite wizard to create a magic mirror. This mirror didn’t show you your reflection. It showed you your soul—it showed you who you really were.

The wizard couldn’t look at it without turning away. The king couldn’t look at it. The courtiers couldn’t look at it. A chestful of treasure was offered to anyone who could look at it for sixty seconds without turning away. And no one could.
 
The Zone of Interest is a love story with a violently unromantic setting. Can love survive the mirror? Can we even meet each other’s eye, after we have seen who we really are?

Powered by both wit and compassion, and in characteristically vivid prose, Martin Amis’s unforgettable new novel excavates the depths and contradictions of the human soul.

Doctor Skippy ,

Bad Pork

Marty is a genius but not unlike his past conspirator Hitchens he has splurged his gift like a compulsive adolescent onanist.
This offering is a fetid sausage of wily craftsmanship, inedible but by the maker's reputation irresistible.
And besides, it wasn't funny at all was it?
