Saturday

In his triumphant new novel, Ian McEwan, the bestselling author of Atonement, follows an ordinary man through a Saturday whose high promise gradually turns nightmarish. Henry Perowne-a neurosurgeon, urbane, privileged, deeply in love with his wife and grown-up children-plans to play a game of squash, visit his elderly mother, and cook dinner for his family. But after a minor traffic accident leads to an unsettling confrontation, Perowne must set aside his plans and summon a strength greater than he knew he had in order to preserve the life that is dear to him.
Rezension
"Dazzling. . . . Powerful. . . . McEwan has shown how we . . . live today." - The New York Times "Finely wrought and shimmering with intelligence." - The New York Times Book Review "McEwan is supremely gifted. . . . Saturday is a tightly wound tour de force." - The Washington Post Book World "This extraordinary book is not a political novel. It is a novel about consciousness that illuminates the sources of politics." - The Nation " Saturday is an exemplary novel, engrossing and sustained. It is undoubtedly McEwan's best." - The Spectator "Read the last 100 pages at one sitting-the pace and the thrill allow it. . . . Exhilarating." - Los Angeles Times Book Review "Virtuosic. . . . Brilliantly macabre and suspenseful. . . . [A] fine novel." - The Wall Street Journal "McEwan is in the first tier of novelists writing in English today. . . . He has achieved a complete mastery of his craft." - The New York Observer "This is McEwan at the height of his powers. . . . More audacious than Atonement. " - The Baltimore Sun "In Saturday, the marvelously gifted Ian McEwan turns a single day into nearly twenty-four hours emblematic of an entire era." - Chicago Tribune "One of the most powerful pieces of post-9/11 fiction yet published." - The New York Times "Complex, suspenseful. . . . This novel . . . reinforces Ian McEwan's status as the supreme novelist of his generation." - The Sunday Times (London)"Engrossing. . . . A thoughtful, measured and mature look at our world today. . . . [McEwan's] skill at weaving together suspense, psychological depth and beautiful prose makes him among Britain's best." - The Atlanta Journal-Constitution "A major event. . . . Saturday proceeds serenely into very different territory where the most secure existence is ringed by sinister possibilities." - Time "Thoroughly fascinating. . . . For sheer intelligence and skill, it's hard to beat Ian McEwan's Saturday. " - The Philadelphia Inquirer "Impeccable. . . . Beautifully crafted. . . . Fluid, richly textured. . . . Engrossing." - Entertainment Weekly "Read this book. . . . On the level of the sentence, McEwan is smart, witty and insightful. . . . His writing astounds. . . . Saturday is almost too good to bear." - The Times-Picayune "Utterly enthralling. . . . Stunningly orderly and harmonious." - The Seattle Times "Magnificently imagined." - San Francisco Chronicle "A brilliant work. . . . Astoundingly enjoyable." - O, The Oprah Magazine "McEwan's special achievement . . . is not only to give his narrative . . . near-hallucinatory clarity and verisimilitude, but also to make you realize that the world of his novel is our world. It's a book of poignant insight into the temper of the times. . . . And it's something rare and precious: a wise book." - San Jose Mercury News "Hypnotic. . . . Exquisitely detailed, rich and suspenseful, literate and surprisingly explosive." - The Miami Herald "McEwan's sentences are perfect, and his novels are always powerful and intelligent." - People "Sober yet scintillating. . . . Lucidly shows us that civilization and culture and the life of the mind, fragile as they seemingly are, nonetheless have a resilience that can outlast barbarism." -Christopher Hitchens, The Atlantic Monthly "A magnificent new novel that captures both the comforts and the anxieties of the world we live in right now." - Vogue "The distinctive achievement of McEwan's work has been to marry literary seriousness and ambition with a pace and momentum more commonly associated with genre fiction. He is the master clockmaker of novelists, piecing together cogs and wheels of his plots with unerring meticulousness." - The New York Times Book Review "Marvelous. . . . A magical book. . . . McEwan shows again the quiet brilliance of his prose and his insights." - Detroit Free Press "Captivating. . . . The prose is so precise and evocative the reader can 'see' the scenes unfolding. . . . [McEwan] is at the top of his game." - The Denver Post
