New book by Dr Sebastian Groes, Senior Lecturer in English Literature.
The new book, which has been praised by Merritt Moseley for its ‘impeccable scholarship’, contains new work on McEwan’s most recent novels, Solar and Sweet Tooth, but it also contains an early short story by McEwan himself. The story is provocative and shocking, and part of the early writing that earned McEwan the nickname ‘Ian Macabre’. Dr Groes also has McEwan’s permission to re-publish another neglected short story, ‘Intersection’, which will appear in a future book called ‘Into the Archive’. Ian McEwan: Contemporary Critical Perspectives is now available from Bloomsbury.
