On Chesil Beach

Ian McEwan's On Chesil Beach is the story of an innocent newlywed couple in the 1960s, their painful entry into an adult physical relationship, and the paths through life that brought them together. Beautifully written and poignant, McEwan's books always take seemingly simple human situations and open them up for a complete examination.
