In "Money", Martin Amis shows us John Self, a director of TV commercials who is moving up professionally to direct his first movie. The producer of this movie, Fielding Goodney, treats John as THE key player in the deal, despite John's serious drinking problem and his continuing embarrassing and bawdy misbehavior.
This is a suicide note. By the time you lay it aside (and you should always read these things slowly, on the lookout for clues or giveaways), John Self will no longer exist.

Yeah,' said the cabbie from behind the shattered plastic of his screen. Fuckin . My cabbie was fortyish, lean, balding. Such hair as remained scurried long and damp down his neck and shoulders.
