Search - List of Books by Ian McEwan

"You enter a state of controlled passivity, you relax your grip and accept that even if your declared intention is to justify the ways of God to man, you might end up interesting your readers rather more in Satan." -- Ian McEwan
Ian Russell McEwan CBE, FRSA, FRSL (born 21 June 1948) is an English novelist and screenwriter. McEwan is one of Britain's most highly regarded writers. In 2008, The Times named McEwan among their list of "The 50 greatest British writers since 1945".

McEwan's first published works were two collections of short stories, First Love, Last Rites (1975) and In Between the Sheets (1978). The Cement Garden (1978) and The Comfort of Strangers (1981) were his two earliest novels. The nature of these works caused him to be nicknamed "Ian Macabre". These were followed by three novels of some success in the 1980s and early 1990s.

In 1997, he published Enduring Love, which was made into a film. He won the Man Booker Prize with Amsterdam (1998). In 2001, he published Atonement, which was made into an Oscar-winning film. This was followed by Saturday (2003) and On Chesil Beach (2007). His latest novel is Solar (2010).
