9780679749844: The Comfort of Strangers

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.

"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

The Times "McEwan, that master of the taciturn macabre, so organizes his narrative that, without insisting anything, every turn and glimpse is another tightening of the noose. The evils of power and the power of evil are transmitted with a steely coolness, and in a prose that has a feline grace." Observer. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0679749845
