I would happily read a washing machine instruction booklet written by McEwan. Nutshell doesn’t disappoint – language, wit, social commentary, and a high-concept delivered well all the way through the last page.

From the bestselling author of Atonement, Nutshell is a classic story of murder and deceit, told by a narrator with a perspective and voice unlike any in recent literature. A bravura performance, it is the finest recent work from a true master. To be bound in a nutshell, see the world in two inches of ivory, in a grain of sand. Why not, when all of literature, all of art, of human endeavour is just a speck in the universe of possible things.
