Product description

Review

`[Exhibits] McEwan's brilliance as a novelist'
-- Tim Adams, Observer

"A didactic, ironic novella of great accomplishment and calculated ambition. Structurally and linguistically, it is a triumph...intriguingly compassionate" -- Prospect, April 2007

"A heavenly read" -- Marie Claire

"A masterpiece" -- TLS

"Exquisitely written" -- Daily Echo

"It is a measure of McEwan's artistry ... to linger in the recording of sensuous particularities and ... deliver the satisfactions of plot" -- Time Out, April 2007

"McEwan conveys the near-numinous significance of a single moment
with quiet, almost unbearable grace" -- Metro

"McEwan shares with his fellow English novelist Jim Crace not only
an interest in history but in finding a style in prose that is slow-moving,
yet compelling, at times stilted and dry, and then suddenly sharp and
precise" -- London Review of Books

"the most anticipated novel of the year" -- GQ

`Another work with a fiercely evocative sense of English period and Landscape' -- The Independent

Book Description

A short novel of quite remarkable depth, power and poignancy by a writer at the height of his powers
