Invasion of the Space Invaders by Martin Amis 1st / 1st 1982
First edition and first print published by Hutchinson in 1982. This is a near fine copy. There is very mild wear to the corner tips otherwise it is in very tidy condition. There is a square mark on the front free end paper where a sticker or label has been removed. The pages are clean and there are no previous owners marks or ink. Overall it is a near fine copy.
In this offbeat book, introduced by Stephen Spielberg, a young Martin Amis explores how 1980s video games took a generation by storm. Delving into the electric atmosphere of the arcades where he misspent his youth, he asks: Why did Space Invaders invade our hearts and minds?
