What is Martin Amis reading?

Martin Amis, author of 20 books--most recently, the novel House of Meetings--talked to the Christian Science Monitor about what he was listening to and viewing for entertainment.

And reading:
Martin Gilbert, A History of Israel. Well, it's an amazing story. When the first settlers came in the late 19th century, would they have believed they would defeat five Arab armies to secure their state? It's a very emotional book. I mean, [Gilbert] doesn't write emotionally, but ... what a tremendous work of emotions Israel is.
See what Amis is listening to and watching.
