In Lionel Asbo, the lit legend and recent Brooklyn transplant returns with a protagonist who’s the same sort of loutish antihero he so painstakingly detailed in titles such as Money and London Fields. Amis touches on national themes—as the book's subtitle, State of England, suggests—as the titular character wins 14 million pounds in the lottery, compounding his small-time problems.
