A novel of remarkable depth and poignancy from one of the most acclaimed writers of our time.

It is July 1962. Florence is a talented musician who dreams of a career on the concert stage and of the perfect life she will create with Edward, an earnest young history student at University College of London, who unexpectedly wooed and won her heart. Newly married that morning, both virgins, Edward and Florence arrive at a hotel on the Dorset coast. At dinner in their rooms they struggle to suppress their worries about the wedding night to come. Edward, eager for rapture, frets over Florence?s response to his advances and nurses a private fear of failure, while Florence?s anxieties run deeper: she is overcome by sheer disgust at the idea of physical contact, but dreads disappointing her husband when they finally lie down together in the honeymoon suite.

Ian McEwan has caught with understanding and compassion the innocence of Edward and Florence at a time when marriage was presumed to be the outward sign of maturity and independence. On Chesil Beach is another masterwork from McEwan?a story of lives transformed by a gesture not made or a word not spoken.

Críticas: `[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
