"Sexy Beast." That's how Martin Amis refers to the title character of his latest novel, "Lionel Asbo: State of England." His creation, Lionel, is a gangster with a love for extortion, topless models and feeding his dogs Tabasco sauce. But he's also got a soft spot for his bookish young nephew. Martin Amis joins us to discuss his latest novel, and his love for misbehaving characters.
Host: Michael Krasny
- Martin Amis, author of "Lionel Asbo: State of England," and of other books including "The Rachel Papers," "Money" and "London Fields"
