Description
The Booker Prize–winning author of Amsterdam and Atonement here gives us a darkly hilarious view of planetary and personal peril. Long past his prime, Nobel Prize–winning physicist Michael Beard cheats on his fifth wife, compulsively overeats, and capitalizes on his fame by lending his name to the letterheads of scientific institutions and halfheartedly leading a government initiative on global warming. Then his professional and personal worlds collide in a freak accident, and suddenly an opportunity presents itself for Michael to extricate himself from his marital problems, reinvigorate his career, and maybe save the world from environmental disaster.

"Vivacious and sprawling, a beautifully and compellingly written novel.... [Ian McEwan's] achievement is the brilliant creation of a flawed, larger than life character who all but walks off the page to shake your hand."—Times (London)
