About this title:

Synopsis: As their holiday unfolds, Colin and Maria are locked into their own intimacy. They groom themselves meticulously, as though someone is waiting for them who cares deeply about how they appear. When they meet a man with a disturbing story to tell, they become drawn into a fantasy of violence and obsession.

From the Back Cover:

"As the best young writer on this island, McEwan's evocations of feeling and place and his analysis of mood and relationship remain haunting and compelling." - The Times


"As always, McEwan manages his own idiom with remarkable grace and inventiveness; his characters are at home in their dreams, and so is he." - Guardian


"His writing is exact, tender, funny, voluptuous, disturbing." - The Times


"The Maestro." - New Statesman


"McEwan has--a style and a vision of life of his own...No one interested in the state and mood of contemporary Britain can afford not to read him." - John Fowles


"A sparkling and adventurous writer." - Dennis Potter
