Summary Taut, brooding, and densely atmospheric, Ian McEwan's short story collection shows us how murder can arise out of boredom, perversity from adolescent curiosity, and how sheer evil might be the solution to unbearable loneliness. While McEwan does not fit the "horror" genre, make no mistake the work here is as horrifying--and frankly terrifying--as anything you'll find written by Clive Barker or Stephen King. McEwan's work is finely crafted with a lyricism and an intensity that compels us to confront our secret kinship with what repels us.
Subject England -- Social life and customs -- 20th century -- Fiction.
Genre/Form Short stories.
