We are delighted to welcome back one of the country’s leading literary figures to Topping & Company Booksellers to celebrate the publication of Lionel Asbo. Lionel Pepperdine is the ferocious anti-hero who proudly changes his surname to ASBO. When Lionel wins just under a hundred million pounds in the National Lottery, the Lotto Lout is unleashed as a menace to society. What follows is a savagely exuberant comic tour de force in which Amis depicts an England lost in a garish limbo of impotence, rage and virtuoso vulgarity.
