"Ian McEwan is Britain's most consistently interesting and rewarding novelist and in this collection of essays his work receives the criticism it deserves. The contributors are thorough and intelligent, whether focused on the early stories, recent work like Atonement and Saturday, or even McEwan's screenwriting, and combine impeccable scholarship with lucidity that will make these essays accessible to the wide audience they ought to find. The chronology, suggestions for further reading, and an interview with McEwan are bonuses." - Merritt Moseley, The Univerity of North Carolina at Asheville, USA.
