WINNER OF THE BOLLINGER EVERYMAN WODEHOUSE PRIZE FOR COMIC FICTION

Michael Beard is a Nobel prize-winning physicist whose best work is behind him. A compulsive womaniser, Beard finds his fifth marriage floundering. But this time it is different: she is having the affair, and he is still in love with her.

When Beard's professional and personal worlds collide in a freak accident, an opportunity presents itself for Beard to extricate himself from his marital mess, reinvigorate his career and save the world from environmental disaster. Ranging from the Arctic Circle to the deserts of New Mexico, this is a story of one man's greed and self-deception; a darkly satirical novel showing human frailty struggling with the most pressing and complex problem of our time.

Review:

" Savagely funny ... Enormously entertaining...a stellar performance" ( Sunday Times)

"A stunningly accomplished work, possibly his best yet...both funny and serious, light and dark, morally engaged and ironically detached" ( Financial Times)

"A satirical masterpiece...it will come to be regarded as a classic" (Lorna Bradbury Daily Telegraph)

"Wonderfully enjoyable... He shows a side to himself as a writer - a puckishness, a broadness of humour, an extravagance of style - that we haven't seen before" (Sam Leith Spectator)

"McEwan has succeeded in producing a novel that is both profoundly serious and hilariously funny" ( Mail on Sunday)

Book Description:

An engrossing, satirical and very funny novel on climate change - an international bestseller.
