Description
(One of the New York Times 10 Best Books of 2005) The Booker Prize–winning author of Amsterdam and Atonement here sets a novel in a single Saturday in Britain in February 2003. Henry Perowne is a successful neurosurgeon, happily married to a media lawyer and on good terms with his children. He is as at ease in his large London home as he is in the operating room, insulated from the impending war against Iraq and the general gathering pessimism since the New York and Washington attacks two years before. But Perowne's Saturday moves through the ordinary to the extraordinary. On his way to his regular squash game with his anesthetist, a minor car accident brings him into a confrontation with a small-time thug. To Perowne's professional eye, something appears to be profoundly wrong with this young man, who in turn believes the surgeon has humiliated him—with savage consequences that will overturn Perowne's neat, optimistic world and force him to employ all his skills to keep his family alive.

"Saturday is a brilliant novel about post-9/11 Britain, about the fragility of middle-class liberal values and assumptions, and the escalating vulnerability of our small, democratic island. It is McEwan writing on absolute top form."—Daily Mail (London)
