Review

"Wonderful...exquisite...devastating" (Independent on Sunday)

"On Chesil Beach is more than an event. It is a masterpiece" (Times Literary Supplement)

"Superb... The protagonists have everything to lose, and their faltering journey towards a point of no return is conjured into life my McEwan with irresistible subtlety, tact and force" (Financial Times)

"Exquisitely crafted" (Evening Standard)

"Written with a fierce pursuit of the truth and an utterly modern self-awareness, what a confidant tour de force this turns out to be" (Sunday Express)

From the Inside Flap

It is July 1962. Edward and Florence, young innocents married that morning, arrive at a hotel on the Dorset coast. At dinner in their rooms they struggle to suppress their private fears of the wedding night to come and, unbeknownst to them both, the events of the evening will haunt them for the rest of their lives.
