Ian McEwan: Contemporary Critical Perspectives by Sebastian Groes
Ian McEwan is one of the most significant, and controversial, British novelists working in the contemporary period. Although primarily a novelist, he has also written short stories, television plays, a libretto, a children's book and a film adaptation. This guide brings together a collection of fresh perspectives on McEwan's oeuvre, not only covering the early works and his writing for the screen but also incorporating detailed and original analyses of the later work, including his most recent novella, On Chesil Beach. It also includes a preface by Matt Ridley, the controversial writer on genetics and human behavior, about McEwan's obsession with science, as well as a unique discussion with McEwan himself.
