In 1946, June and Bernard set off on their honeymoon. Fired by their ideals and passion for one another, they had planned an idyllic holiday, but in France they witness an event that alters the course of their lives entirely. Forty years on, their son-in-law is trying to uncover the cause of their estrangement and is led back to this moment on honeymoon and an experience of such darkness it was to wrench the couple apart.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Powerful... Unforgettable" * Sunday Telegraph *
"His best yet, which I should make clear is saying a great deal" * Observer *
"Brilliant...a meditation on the intoxications of violence and the redemptive power of love" * New Yorker *
"Superbly evocative prose... The novel's vision of Europe is acute and alive, vivid in its moral complexities" * New York Times Book Review *
"Compassionate without resorting to sentimentality, clever without ever losing its honesty, an undisguised novel of ideas which is also Ian McEwan's most human work" * Times Literary Supplement *

“Black Dogs”

This novel deals with good and evil in some everyday ways. Tidier than life - and observably more true - this is a book I'll always come back to meditate on.
