Ian McEwan''s Somerset Maugham Award-winning collection
First Love, Last Rites brought him instant
recognition as one of the most influential voices writing in
England today. Taut, brooding, and densely atmospheric, these
stories show us the ways in which murder can arise out of boredom,
perversity can result from adolescent curiosity, and sheer evil
might be the solution to unbearable loneliness. These tales are as
horrifying as anything written by Clive Barker or Stephen King, but
they are crafted with a lyricism and intensity that compel us to
confront our secret kinship with the horrifying.
