Ian McEwan explains inspiration behind Nutshell, his forthcoming novel narrated in utero -- exclusive
Atonement author Ian McEwan returns with his latest novel, Nutshell, this September — and it’s shaping up to be a weird one, in the very best way. Here’s a snippet from the official summary:
Trudy has betrayed her husband, John. She’s still in the marital home — a dilapidated, priceless London townhouse — but John’s not here. Instead, she’s with his brother, the profoundly banal Claude, and the two of them have a plan. But there is a witness to their plot: the inquisitive, nine-month-old resident of Trudy’s womb.
