Writers who parents are writers (Amis and Amis)

London Fields - Martin Amis Einstein's Monsters - Martin Amis, Erroll McDonald God's Dice - Martin Amis Everyday Drinking - Kingsley Amis The Green Man - Kingsley Amis Take a Girl Like You - Kingsley Amis

Martin Amis was a good friend of Christopher Hitchens. That's actually how I came to know about his work and about his famous writer father.


There must be a bibliography somewhere that tell me how Martin turned out to be a writer like his father. 

Or how living with the name Amis, the famous writer's son, come with some advantages and disadvantages. I would think the path might be easier as the publishers could be in his circle of acquaintance.


Looking forward to read more on these pair of father and son books.
