about this book

Winner of the Somerset Maugham Award

"McEwan's fictional world combin[es] the bleak, dreamlike quality of de Chirico's citiscapes with the strange eroticism of canvases by Balthus. Menace lies crouched between the lines of his neat, angular prose, and weird, grisly things occur in his books with nearly casual aplomb."
--New York Times
