Love, family, the massive protest against the pending international invasion of Iraq; as Henry's life spins out among the events of his day, McEwan traces the forces which shadow our post-9/11 world.
Ian McEwan, articulate and perceptive, has created a deceptively simple story that illuminates our current lives. Highly recommended. Excellent for discussion groups; you will find much here to explore. Saturday won the James Tait Black Memorial Prize. Hope you enjoy it. Curt
