What the papers say:
"Savagely funny... Enormously entertaining...a stellar performance" Sunday Times "A stunningly accomplished work, possibly his best yet...both funny and serious, light and dark, morally engaged and ironically detached" Financial Times "A satirical will come to be regarded as a classic" -- Lorna Bradbury Daily Telegraph "Wonderfully enjoyable... He shows a side to himself as a writer - a puckishness, a broadness of humour, an extravagance of style - that we haven't seen before" -- Sam Leith Spectator "McEwan has succeeded in producing a novel that is both profoundly serious and hilariously funny" Mail on Sunday

Author's Biography:
Ian McEwan is the author of two collections of stories and twelve previous novels, including Enduring Love, Amsterdam, for which he won the Booker Prize in 1998, Atonement and, most recently, Solar.
