When his literary ambitions are frustrated, Milan Zorec decides he needs something original to write about. It is 1995 and Zorec heads from London to the black heart of Europe's most brutal conflict in half a century: the Bosnian War. There he joins the Serbian military forces as a sniper and helps them pick off civilians cowering in the besieged city of Sarajevo. Excited by the violence, seduced by the carnage and intrigued by the lost souls who are his comrades, Zorec spends his spare time reflecting on the power of words, the evils of the literary establishment and the absurdities of war.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A devastating tour de force and a brilliant first novel. This is intelligent, provocative entertainment at its best." --"Erotic Review"
"Like Vladimir Nabokov's "Lolita", "I Hate Martin Amis et al." is a disturbing and darkly humourous novel with an intelligent, unsettling central character; Milan Zorec's 'mediocre talent' as a writer allows Barry to play with metafiction and allegory, and to offset cliche with genuinely skillful wordplay." --Darien Thomas Bragg, theblindreadingtheblind.wordpress.com
