Customer Review

on 26 November 2012
A superb novel tracing the interrelated fates of three men grieving the death of their common lover, Molly. Status and pride shape their existences, leading to successive misunderstandings and misjudgements, and a brilliant if comically absurd conclusion. The subtleties of timing, and of language, are prominent, not only to the auteur characters (especially the newspaper editor and composer), but also in McEwan's narrative. Set in the dying days of the last Conservative government (late 1990s), it nevertheless has a timeless quality as an old fashioned morality tale about the pitfalls of pride.
