This is another paragraph

From Publishers Weekly: Amis is an ingenious short story writer, and this collection of tales, three of which have not been seen here before, offers a good sampling of his range. This includes, of course, tone-perfect mimicry, which is evident in State of England, about a disco bouncer with a son at a posh English boys' school, and What Happened to Me on My Holiday, told in the misspelled, petulant voice of a hurt child. Then there is sharp, edgy comedy based on the notion of role reversal. In Career Move, much admired when it appeared in the New Yorker six years ago, poets swagger around Hollywood in an atmosphere of big movie deals and heroin-fueled script conferences, while screenplay authors attend eager readings of each other's work and vie desperately for publication in ephemeral little magazines that never pay. Straight Fiction supposes that the world is predominantly gay but that outposts of heterosexuality remain in areas like New York's Christopher Street and San Francisco's Castro, exerting a malificent influence on the predominant, comfortable culture. The Coincidence of the Arts has an aristocratic and evasive English artist in New York trying to avoid reading an ambitious novel thrust upon him by his black doorman.
