Forthcoming Books: Chesil Beach

Fans of Ian McEwan have something to look forward to. His new book, On Chesil Beach, is due out in the US on June 5. It's a short book, only 176 pages, and early reviews are good. Here's the book blub on on AmazonUK, and it certainly sounds intriguing.

"It is June 1962. In a hotel on the Dorset coast, overlooking Chesil Beach, Edward and Florence, who got married that morning, are sitting down to dinner in their room. Neither is entirely able to suppress their anxieties about the wedding night to come...."

The book was published this month in the UK, so you can find some reviews in the British papers, such as The Guardian.
