In Between the SHEETS
And Other Stories By IAN MCEWAN
"A writer of uncanny power"... "Compellingly readable"... "Astonishing"... "A powerful talent that is both weird and wonderful"—such has been the praise for Ian McEwan's remarkable first novel, The Cement Garden.
Already a recipient of the coveted Somerset Maugham award for His first collection of stories, First Love, Last Rites, with In Between the Sheets McEwan confirms his reputation as a master storyteller who seizes upon the erotic and the unusual to explore the darkness within us all. These seven stories reveal the astonishing range of McEwan's talent and are at once sinister, comic, chillingly inventive, and brilliantly written.
In, In Between the Sheets:
1) A callous young man carries on an affair with two nurses at the same time—and becomes the victim of their horrible revenge.
2) We hear the sad reflections of a kept ape, discarded as a lover and confidant by his mistress.
3) A wealthy businessman falls in love with a dummy in a clothes shop and brings her home —only to suspect her of carrying on an affair with his chauffeur.
4) A father's guilt over his own sexual inadequacy haunts him during the visit of his young daughter and her unusually close friend.
Plus three more stories that evoke the private world of passion and emotion in a style that is ironic, spare, humorous and macabre all at once. Ian McEwan, a remarkable writer, once again displays the storytelling powers that led A. Alvarez to acclaim him as "the most original prose talent to emerge from England in a generation."
