Ian McEwan
Ian McEwan's Atonement
Ian McEwan is the man who wrote what many critics regarded as the novel of the year, Atonement.

He was widely expected to win the Booker Prize. But, he did not, and it went, instead, to Peter Carey.

Nigel Wrench spoke to Ian McEwan and listened to him read from Atonement.

He reflects that he had won the Booker with his previoius book and others felt the loss more keenly than he did.
