That's Quite A Set Of Canines

First, Martin Amis's expensive dental problems were held responsible for his breaking off with literary agent Pat Kavanagh and signing up with Andrew 'The Jackal' Wylie. Now, the same set of teeth have been implicated in a dust-up between author Will Self and journalist Toby Young:

"Young confirmed there'd been a punch-up, but it was all because of Martin Amis's teeth. He'd been castigating Amis's apparent hypocrisy (as the declared enemy of the moronic inferno of mass culture) in spending 20 grand on cosmetic surgery for his choppers."

- From an article in The Guardian on a documentary dealing with the rise and fall of The Modern Review, the irreverent publication edited by Young and Julie Burchill.
