Review:

"A talented and genuine imaginative writer. McEwan's details often grow into strange, powerful images - the ironies, throughout this impressive collection, are tellingly weighted" (Julian Barnes)

"A writer of uncanny power" ( Time)

"Ian McEwan writes to shock and succeeds... All his stories have a feeling of impending evil - it is a tour de force of concision, and funny, too, in a deadpan manner" ( Times Literary Supplement)

"His writing is exact, tender, funny, voluptuous, disturbing" ( The Times)

"A brilliant performance" ( Observer)

From the Publisher:

A brilliant performance. There's an assured and terribly macabre depravity about Ian McEwan's short stories - as if some of the characters from early Angus Wilson had been painted by Francis Bacon - Observer
