Amis' Serious Money

Author Martin Amis (who coincidentally wrote a novel called Money) :
... is earning close to £3,000-an-hour in his role as a professor of creative writing at the University of Manchester
according to Arifa Akbar in The Independent.

The Manchester Evening News discovered that :
... he is committed to working for 28 hours a year in this role, outside of his writing and research duties as a professor. This work earns him a salary of £80,000 ...
Craig Brown in The Telegraph wonders if it really is all that much compared with what other are earning.
