    Abstract

    This article reads Martin Amis's Money (1984) alongside Alasdair Gray's contemporaneous novel 1982 Janine. Drawing on Stuart Hall's analyses of Thatcherism as a contradictory ideological formation ‘speaking in the ear’ of the subject, the article presents both novels as troubled monologues from within the imaginative ideological space of a new Conservatism.
