Martin Louis Amis (born 25 August 1949) is an English novelist, literary critic, professor, and short story writer. He is the son of Sir Kingsley Amis. His works include such novels as Money (1984), London Fields (1989) and The Information (1995). Amis's raw material is what he sees as the absurdity and caricatures of the postmodern condition - he has thus sometimes been portrayed as the undisputed master of what the New York Times has called "the new unpleasantness."

The Guardian writes that "all his critics have noted what Kingsley Amis complained of as a 'terrible compulsive vividness in his style ... that constant demonstrating of his command of English'; and it's true that the Amis-ness of Amis will be recognisable in any piece before he reaches his first full stop." In the words of one prominent academic, he is the "leading luminary of the English metropolitan literary world".

Amis's paternal grandfather was a mustard manufacturer's clerk from Clapham, and his maternal grandfather a shoe millionaire. His parents, Hilary Bardwell and Sir Kingsley Amis, divorced when he was twelve. Much later, Martin lived in a house with Kingsley, Hilly, and Hilly's third husband, Alistair Boyd, Lord Kilmarnock. Amis has described it as "omething out of early Updike, 'Couples' flirtations and a fair amount of drinking," he told The New York Times. "They were all 'at it'."
