M-m-m-My Generation, baby

Martin Amis, who clearly hoped he'd die before he got old and is living with disappointment:
They'll be a population of demented very old people, like an invasion of terrible immigrants, stinking out the restaurants and cafes and shops. I can imagine a sort of civil war between the old and the young in 10 or 15 years' time. There should be a [euthanasia] booth on every ­corner where you could get a martini and a meda.

So, clearly, he has no doubts whatever where the obsession with zombies comes from - it is just so bizarre that he puts it like this.
