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.

Ian McEwan Reviews

"Ian McEwan is Britain's most consistently interesting and rewarding novelist and in this collection of essays his work receives the criticism it deserves. The contributors are thorough and intelligent, whether focused on the early stories, recent work like Atonement and Saturday, or even McEwan's screenwriting, and combine impeccable scholarship with lucidity that will make these essays accessible to the wide audience they ought to find. The chronology, suggestions for further reading, and an interview with McEwan are bonuses." - Professor Merritt Moseley, University of North Carolina, USA
