It’s Martin Amis week here on The Bell!

I mean it’ll probably turn out to be two or three weeks, maybe a month. Could just be a few days tbqh. But we’re roughly Martin Amis themed for a little bit, k?

To kick off Martin Amis week here on The Bell, let’s take a look at who’s got the best sensationalist/google-optimised URL for their review of The Pregnant Widow.

Telegraph and Guardian groups both disappointingly sensible:

www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/7157220/The-Pregnant-Widow-by-Martin-Amis-review.html
www.guardian.co.uk/books/2010/jan/31/pregnant-widow-martin-amis-review
www.guardian.co.uk/books/2010/feb/06/pregnant-widow-martin-amis-review

Metro seem mildly confused about the business of alluring URls:

So the field’s wide open for the New Statesman to step in and nick it:

‘Keith’ a beautiful touch.

The Mail has nothing going on, despite having the strongest reputation in the field:

And their features staff have to show the bookoes how to do it:
