The calm, organized life of science writer Joe Rose is shattered when he sees a man die in a freak hot-air balloon accident. A stranger named Jed Parry joins Rose in helping to bring the balloon to safety, but unknown to Rose, something passes between Parry and himself on that day—something that gives birth to an obsession in Parry so powerful that it will test the limits of Rose's beloved rationalism, threaten the love of his wife, Clarissa, and drive him to the brink of murder and madness. From the Booker Prize-winning author of Atonement, here is a brilliant and compassionate novel of love, faith, and suspense, and of how life can change in an instant.

Master's Thesis from the year 2016 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, University of Al-Qadisiyah, language: English, abstract: This thesis deals with intertextuality in Ian McEwan's novels. The aim of this study is to show how McEwan uses intertextuality and how this technique is used to develop the themes, characters, and narration of his novels. This study tries also to label the different kinds of intertextuality that McEwan uses. This thesis is divided into an introduction, three chapters, and a conclusion. Intertextuality is an important subject in literary and linguistic studies. As a term, it was introduced by Julia Kristeva in 1966. The main idea of intertextuality is the shaping of a texts' meanings in the light of another. Consequently, there is no text, rather intertext. Other critics and theorists developed this theory. Mikhail Bakhtin has a social approach to it. Roland Barthe adapts a textual analysis of intertextuality, and focuses on the role of the reader rather than of writer. Chapter one of this thesis is an introduction and is divided into three sections. Section one tackles the theory of interextuality. It discusses its definition, applications, roots and history, development, and its pioneers, while section two focuses on the multiple types and devices of intetextuality. Section three focuses on Ian McEwan's life and career. Chapter Two studies McEwan's Enduring Love (1997). It tackles important issues such as the controversy between human studies and literature on the one hand, and science on the other. The researcher tries to discover what kind of intertextuality this novel has. Chapter three discusses McEwan's masterpiece, Atonement (2001). It is a very rich intertextual novel. The researcher tries to discover McEwan's aim behind this aura of intertextuality, how he exploits them for the sake of the themes, techniques, narrative, and finally for the sake of metafictionality. In chapter four, the rese

Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,0, University of Regensburg (Anglistik und Amerikanistik), course: Science and Literature Studies, language: English, abstract: Looking at the British novelist McEwan’s work makes evident that he is, though belonging to the realm of literature himself, very much intrigued by scientific topics. For his novels Saturday and Enduring Love he even chose two scientists as the protagonists, who imprint their rational-scientific worldview on the narration. At the same time, both protagonists happen to find themselves in conflict with the realm of literature. The study at hand analyses the conflict of literature and science described in the novels, bearing in mind the real conflict of the "two cultures" since the 19th century.

The blurring of the mundane and the horrible, perversions of the ordinary, visceral twistings of everyday life: such is the territory explored in much of Ian McEwan's fiction - works that have brought him not only critical acclaim but also a notoriety that springs directly from the dark and violent nature of his subject matter. In such novels as The Cement Garden (1978) and The Comfort of Strangers (1981) and in the story collection First Love, Last Rites (1975), McEwan has dealt with incest, regression, brutality, perversion, and murder in what has been perceived as a conscious desire to repel and discomfit the reader. One of the primary objectives of Jack Slay's comprehensive, insightful overview of McEwan's novels, stories, and screenplays is to dispel this perception - that McEwan is a fine writer tainted by too frequent ventures into the darkest of psyches. Slay contends that by emphasizing the ordinary within the extraordinary, the normality within the abnormality, McEwan is able to depict the reality of a bizarre and often demented world. Slay sees McEwan as not just a fiction writer but a conscientious historian for our times. Slay concludes that McEwan's revealing glimpses into the politics and machinations of interpersonal relationships have exposed the foibles and lauded the virtues of the modern world. His dark portraits of contemporary society speak to the immediate present, illustrating the necessities and the needs, the dreams and the longings of every individual.

National Bestseller Ian McEwan’s symphonic novel of love and war, childhood and class, guilt and forgiveness provides all the satisfaction of a brilliant narrative and the provocation we have come to expect from this master of English prose. On a hot summer day in 1935, thirteen-year-old Briony Tallis witnesses a moment’s flirtation between her older sister, Cecilia, and Robbie Turner, the son of a servant and Cecilia’s childhood friend. But Briony’ s incomplete grasp of adult motives–together with her precocious literary gifts–brings about a crime that will change all their lives. As it follows that crime’s repercussions through the chaos and carnage of World War II and into the close of the twentieth century, Atonement engages the reader on every conceivable level, with an ease and authority that mark it as a genuine masterpiece.
