Review quote

"Marks the debut of a talented and genuinely imaginative writer" -- Julian Barnes New Statesman "As promising a first collection of stories as I have ever come across" Vogue "Ian McEwan writes to shock and succeeds... It is a tour-de-force of concision, and funny, too, in a deadpan manner" -- Gabriele Annan Times Literary Supplement "And now for a brand new writer of formidable talent, Ian McEwan who is 27. His stories First Love, Last Rites...are the most devastating debut I have seen for a long time" -- Peter Lewis Daily Mail "A brilliant debut by the most promising writer around" -- A. Alvarez Observer Books of the Year
