"McEwan [has] a powerful talent that is both weird and wonderful." —Boston Sunday Globe

"Ian McEwan’s fictional world combin[es] the bleak, dreamlike quality of de Chirico’s city-scapes with the strange eroticism of canvases by Balthus. Menace lies crouched between the lines of his neat, angular prose, and weird, grisly things occur in his books with nearly casual aplomb." —The New York Times

"McEwan is a splendid magician of fear." —Village Voice Literary Supplement
