The film version of Martin Amis’s dark novel London Fields remains unreleased because of a lawsuit brought by the director against the producers.
I wonder if the two parties are arguing about whether to include the book’s most disturbing and immoral line, spoken by the femme fatale Nicola Six:
‘But that’s enough etymology for now.’
As St Martin-in-the-Fields knows, there’s never enough etymology.
