In his triumphant new novel, Ian McEwan, the bestselling author of Atonement, follows an ordinary man through a Saturday whose high promise gradually turns nightmarish. Henry Perowne—a neurosurgeon, urbane, privileged, deeply in love with his wife and grown-up children—plans to play a game of squash, visit his elderly mother, and cook dinner for his family. But after a minor traffic accident leads to an unsettling confrontation, Perowne must set aside his plans and summon a strength greater than he knew he had in order to preserve the life that is dear to him.


“Dazzling. . . . Powerful. . . . McEwan has shown how we . . . live today.” —The New York Times

“McEwan is supremely gifted. . . . Saturday is a tightly wound tour de force.” —The Washington Post Book World

“Finely wrought and shimmering with intelligence.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Read the last 100 pages at one sitting—the pace and the thrill allow it. . . . Exhilarating.” —Los Angeles Times Book Review

Saturday is an exemplary novel, engrossing and sustained. It is undoubtedly McEwan’s best.” —The Spectator

“This extraordinary book is not a political novel. It is a novel about consciousness that illuminates the sources of politics.” —The Nation

“A rich book, sensuous and thoughtful. . . . McEwan has found in Saturday the right form to showcase his dazzling talents.” —Daily Telegraph
