Can anyone recommend Ian McEwan’s best work? I couldn’t get into Atonement, but I’d like to give him another try. My friend Beth and I discussed this once while standing in front of his books at Barnes and Noble, but I left empty handed. I’m sorting through the list of 1001 books I should read before I die and see several selections by him. Help!

Saturday! And Amsterdam.

I’m an On Chesil Beach girl, myself.

 First Love, Last Rites. Actually, I like all of his novellas, but that’s my favorite. The film is good, too, but it should have been a short.
