DescriptionConversations with Ian McEwan collects sixteen interviews, conducted over three decades, with the British author of such highly praised novels as Enduring Love, Atonement, Saturday, and On Chesil Beach. McEwan (b. 1948) discusses his views on authorship, the writing process, and major themes found in his fiction, but he also expands upon his interests in music, film, global politics, the sciences, and the state of literature in contemporary society. McEwan's candid and forthcoming discussions with notable contemporary writers--Martin Amis, Zadie Smith, Ian Hamilton, David Remnick, and Stephen Pinker--provide readers with the most in-depth portrait available of the author and his works. Readers will find McEwan to be just as engaging, humorous, and intelligent as his writings suggest. The volume includes interviews from British, Spanish, French, and American sources, two interviews previously available only in audio format, and a new interview conducted with the book's editor. Ryan Roberts, Springfield, Illinois, is a librarian at Lincoln Land Community College and an editorial assistant for Between the Lines. He is the official webmaster for Julian Barnes, Ian McEwan, and James Fenton, among others.
