The Children Act

Ian McEwan’s book is about the oddly utilitarian bargains we make about the things most dear to us, the terrible balance sheet of happiness and grief, of life and death. It will not surprise McEwan’s readers to learn that by the end of this brilliant book all debts are paid, and with interest.
