Black Dogs Reviews

"Powerful... Unforgettable" * Sunday Telegraph *
"His best yet, which I should make clear is saying a great deal" * Observer *
"Brilliant...a meditation on the intoxications of violence and the redemptive power of love" * New Yorker *
"Superbly evocative prose... The novel's vision of Europe is acute and alive, vivid in its moral complexities" * New York Times Book Review *
"Compassionate without resorting to sentimentality, clever without ever losing its honesty, an undisguised novel of ideas which is also Ian McEwan's most human work" * Times Literary Supplement *
