Book Description:

David Aula and Jimmy Osborne's stage adaptation of Ian McEwan's 1978 novel explores coming-of-age, burgeoning sexuality and the distortions of a fourteen-year-old mind.

From the Back Cover:

"A shocking book, morbid, full of repellant imagery - and irresistibly readable...The effect achieved by McEwan's quiet, precise and sensuous touch is that of magic realism - a transfiguration of the ordinary that has far stronger retinal and visceral impact than the flabby surrealism of so many experimental novels."- New York Review of Books


"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
