Maxwell Caulfield has precisely the English voice and superb control needed to perform this gem of a novel. Ian McEwan writes for the ear, so this reading is a powerful aural experience, as well as an intellectual and emotional one. Funny, nasty and sad, the book won the 1998 Booker Prize; it's easy to see and hear why. The story opens at the funeral of Molly Lane, the sexy young journalist who slept with the newspaper editor; the famous composer; the foreign secretary; and even sometimes with the dour, ill-at-ease but immensely rich publisher to whom she was married. This is a short book, but her sudden, meaningless death will not be the last. B.H.C. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 99]
