Description
(One of the New York Times Book Review's 100 Notable Books of 2012) The author of Atonement (a National Book Critics Circle Award winner), Amsterdam (winner of the Booker Prize), and the Whitbread Award winner The Child in Time, Ian McEwan here gives us another stunning novel with a female protagonist, who is about to learn that espionage is the ultimate seduction. Cambridge student Serena Frome's beauty and intelligence make her the ideal recruit for MI5. The year is 1972, and the Cold War is far from over. England's intelligence agency is determined to manipulate the world's cultural conversation by funding writers whose politics align with those of the government. The operation is code named "Sweet Tooth." Serena, a compulsive reader of novels, infiltrates the literary circle of a promising young writer named Tom Haley. At first, she loves his stories; then she begins to love the man. Finally, she abandons the first rule of espionage: trust no one.

"This is a great big beautiful Russian doll of a novel, and its construction—deft, tight, exhilaratingly immaculate—is a huge part of its pleasure.... Sweet Tooth is a comic novel and a novel of ideas, but, unlike so many of those, it also exerts a keen emotional pull."—Observer (London)
