Lionel Pepperdine is the ferocious antihero of Martin Amis' latest, who proudly changes his surname legally to ASBO – which stands for "Anti-Social Behavior Order." When Lionel wins just under a hundred million pounds in the National Lottery, the Lotto Lout is unleashed as a menace to society. Much of the action is seen through the eyes of Lionel's honest, intelligent, and frighteningly vulnerable mixed-race nephew, Desmond Pepperdine. Desmond has a guilty secret--and powerful reasons to fear his uncle's anger, which he knows to be limitless.
