Top British writers have a knack with language that fills this colonial with awe. Ian McEwan is one of these. Top British readers bring that knack to life. Nathaniel Parker is one. Here we have exquisite prose, exquisitely read. There's a caveat, though. This is two, two, two books in one. It's a novel and also a study in science and philosophy. This necessarily slows the action, which is built around a single heart-wrenching incident. Stephen, a children's book writer, looks up from the super-market checkout and discovers that Kate, his five-year-old daughter, is gone. Vanished.
