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.
