BRITISH author Martin Amis has died after losing his battle with cancer. The 73-year-old novelist reportedly died of oesophageal cancer on Friday at his home in Lake Worth, Florida.

Money: A Suicide Note, London Fields, and The Information are among Amis’ best-known works.

He was also one of the most celebrated writers of the 1980s British literary scene.

His wife, Isabel Fonseca, confirmed his death was caused by esophageal cancer.

On Twitter, the Booker Prizes paid tribute to the literary giant.

The post read: “We are saddened to hear that Martin Amis, one of the most acclaimed and discussed novelists of the past 50 years, has died.

“Our thoughts are with his family and friends.”

Amis was born in Oxford in 1949 and educated in the UK and abroad.

He eventually attended Exeter College in Oxford, where he received first-class honours in English.
