I have a rocky relationship with McEwan's work. I liked Atonement. I loved Amsterdam. I rhapsodised to the point of obsession over Saturday. Other than the startlingly original and funny treatise on the single pubic hair peeping out of the heroine's underwear, I did not like On Chisel Beach. Sweet Tooth invited unflattering comparison to Le Carre at his best (damn, whatever happened to Le Carre?). So I approached McEwan's latest with the attitude of a beaten puppy. It is, I am happy to report, a partial return to form.
