A Globe and Mail Notable Book of 1998
On a chilly February day two old friends meet in the throng outside
a crematorium to pay their last respects to Molly Lane. Both Clive
Linley and Vernon Halliday had been Molly''s lovers in the days
before they reached their current eminence - Clive as Britain''s
most successful modern composer, Vernon as editor of the broadsheet
The Judge. But gorgeous, feisty Molly had other lovers too, notably
Julian Garmony, the Foreign Secretary, a notorious right-winger
poised to be the next prime minister. What happens in the aftermath
of her funeral has a profound and shocking effect on all her
lovers'' lives, and erupts in the most purely enjoyable fiction Ian
McEwan has ever written.
