Ian McEwan Reading

And the school year events promotion begins. Don’t miss this. Professor Jay Parini writes in an email to English majors:

On Tuesday night, September 7, at 7:30, Ian McEwan will read from his fiction in Mead Chapel.  This is a major event for us, as McEwan is widely admired in the world as a novelist and writer of short fiction.  He won the Booker Prize for Amsterdam, and his novel Atonement was a major film a few years ago.  Here is what the Washington Post recently said about him:  “No one writing in the English language surpasses Ian McEwan.”  This is typical of the praise heaped on this highly original writer, whose work shows an extraordinary degree of psychological depth.
