NOVEL OF THE MONTH
Nutshell by Ian McEwan
Trudy has betrayed her husband, John. She’s still in the marital home – a dilapidated, priceless London townhouse – but not with John. Instead, she’s with his brother, the profoundly banal Claude, and the two of them have a plan. But there is a witness to their plot: the inquisitive, nine-month-old resident of Trudy’s womb…
One of the most anticipated books of the year, McEwan’s latest demonstrates that even after 15 novels, his inimitable imagination remains undimmed and his considerable storytelling abilities show no sign of deserting him.
