It is June 1962. In a hotel on the Dorset coast, overlooking Chesil Beach, Edward and Florence, who got married that morning, are sitting down to dinner in their room. Neither is entirely able to suppress their anxieties about the wedding night to come...
On Chesil Beach is another masterwork from Ian McEwan - a story about how the entire course of a life can be changed by a gesture not made or a word not spoken.
`[Exhibits] McEwan's brilliance as a novelist'
-- Tim Adams, Observer
"A didactic, ironic novella of great accomplishment and calculated ambition. Structurally and linguistically, it is a triumph...intriguingly compassionate" -- Prospect, April 2007
"A heavenly read" -- Marie Claire
"A masterpiece" -- TLS
"Exquisitely written" -- Daily Echo
"It is a measure of McEwan's artistry ... to linger in the recording of sensuous particularities and ... deliver the satisfactions of plot" -- Time Out, April 2007
"McEwan conveys the near-numinous significance of a single moment
with quiet, almost unbearable grace" -- Metro
"McEwan shares with his fellow English novelist Jim Crace not only
an interest in history but in finding a style in prose that is slow-moving,
yet compelling, at times stilted and dry, and then suddenly sharp and
precise" -- London Review of Books
"the most anticipated novel of the year" -- GQ
`Another work with a fiercely evocative sense of English period and Landscape' -- The Independent
