Collaborative fiction

"Chain fiction, part 4." Esquire (December 1997): 156. Amis's contribution to a story in miniature. A one-page narrative written in serial installments by five authors: Frank McCourt; Pete Dexter; Jackie Collins; Amis; and Garrison Keillor. Amis's contribution, a parody of the Danielle Steel school of novel-writing, contains this priceless reductio ad absurdum of the genre: "Towards dawn, he took her again."

"It's Disgusting At Your Age." The New Review 3 (September 1976): 19-24. Gender roles are reversed in this satirical play about James and Freddie, who fret about their hair, clothes, and being sexually exploited by Felicity and Miranda.
