I have read a couple of McEwan books and I can safely say I like his books. After I read this article on Ian McEwan, I realized I was unaware of his earlier, controversial books. McEwan comes across as a nice guy who cares about other people and one who understand human nature. He takes great care in etching his characters. Usage of curse word is less in his book, atleast relatively. So, it is difficult to believe that McEwan wrote about such controversial subjects. Ian Mcewan known as Ian Macabre? I didn’t know that.
His latest book, Solar is expected to release in March. The article says this is going to be his darkest book. Hmm.
