Ian McEwan, winner of the Booker Prize for Atonement, reads from and discusses his new novel, Lessons, a powerful meditation on history and humanity told through the prism of one man’s lifetime.
McEwan’s “prose, so fluid and elegant, so vivid and meticulous, carries a narrative of great moment and insights of otherwise ineffable grandeur,” wrote Claire Messud. “And he forces his readers to turn the pages with greater dread and anticipation than does perhaps any other ‘literary’ writer working in English today. Reading McEwan's work, we often find it impossible to slow down.”
