Author(s): Ian McEwan
A young couple have their child snatched from them and are driven apart by despair. 'This is the McEwan you and i have been waiting for. . . THE CHILD IN TIME is an extraordinary achievement in which form and content, theory and practice re so expertly and inseparably interwoven that the novel becomes an advertisement for, or proof of, its own thesis. I also found it very moving, the end beautifully so'Shelia Macleod, GUARDIAN 'It is marvellously written, moving, serious, readable. . . If you want to be appalled, refreshed, exhilarated, enlivened- read it'John Carey SUNDAY TIMES
Spooky - wonderful' Observer 19961231
