Ian McEwan’s Atonement

This month’s novel is Ian McEwan’s Atonement.

This month’s novel is NATIONAL BESTSELLER Ian McEwan’s Atonement.

A symphonic novel of love and war, childhood and class, guilt and forgiveness that provides all the satisfaction of a brilliant narrative and the provocation we have come to expect from the acclaimed Booker Prize–winning, international bestselling author Ian McEwan.

On a hot summer day in 1935, thirteen-year-old Briony Tallis witnesses a moment’s flirtation between her older sister, Cecilia, and Robbie Turner, the son of a servant and Cecilia’s childhood friend. But Briony’ s incomplete grasp of adult motives—together with her precocious literary gifts—brings about a crime that will change all their lives.

“A beautiful and majestic fictional panorama.” —John Updike, The New Yorker
