Produktdetails

'A brilliant performance. There's an assured and terribly macabre depravity about Ian McEwan's short stories - as if some of the characters from early Angus Wilson had been painted by Francis Bacon' Observer

Über den Autor

Ian McEwan is the author of two collections of stories and twelve previous novels, including Enduring Love, Amsterdam, for which he won the Booker Prize in 1998, Atonement and, most recently, Solar.

Kritikerstimmen

"A talented and genuine imaginative writer. McEwan's details often grow into strange, powerful images - the ironies, throughout this impressive collection, are tellingly weighted" -- Julian Barnes "A writer of uncanny power" Time "Ian McEwan writes to shock and succeeds... All his stories have a feeling of impending evil - it is a tour de force of concision, and funny, too, in a deadpan manner" Times Literary Supplement "His writing is exact, tender, funny, voluptuous, disturbing" The Times "A brilliant performance" Observer

Guter Zustand. Einband etwas knittrig. "Nichts Überflüssiges belastet die strenge, dichte Prosa, und doch erinnert der assoziative Stil zuweilen an James Joyce." (Neue Zürcher Zeitung). "Eine tour de force an Präzision und Komik." (The Times Literary Supplement). “A talented and genuinely imaginative writer, McEwan’s details often grow into strange, powerful images… the ironies, throughout this impressive collection are tellingly weighted.” -- Julian Barnes. “A brilliant performance… There’s an assured and terribly macabre depravity about Ian McEwan’s short stories… as if some of the characters from early Angus Wilson had been painted by Francis Bacon.” -- Anthony Thwaite, Observer. "Ian McEwan writes to shock and succeeds -- All his stories have a feeling of impending evil -- It is a tour de force of concision, and funny, too, in a deadpan manner." -- TLS. "A brilliant performance -- There's an assured and terribly macabre depravity about Ian McEwan's short stories -- as if some of the characters from early Angus Wilson had been painted by Francis Bacon." -- Observer. "His writing is exact, tender, funny, voluptuous, disturbing." -- The Times. - First Love, Last Rites is a collection of short stories by Ian McEwan. It was first published in 1975 by Jonathan Cape and re-issued in 1997 by Vintage. Context: The collection is McEwan's first published work and was regarded by the author (along with his second collection of short stories, In Between the Sheets) as an opportunity to experiment and find his voice as a writer. In an interview with Christopher Ricks in 1979, McEwan commented, "They were a kind of laboratory for me. They allowed me to try out different things, to discover myself as a writer." As a piece of work that portrays McEwan, the writer, at his youngest, it is perhaps fitting that the dominant theme is that of adolescence, of the blurry and perilous divide between childhood and adulthood; in addition themes of sex, perversion, and the grotesque in its many forms feature throughout. Stories: The book is composed of eight short stories, with the title story coming seventh: "Homemade" "Solid Geometry" "Last Day of Summer" "Cocker at the Theatre" "Butterflies" "Conversation with a Cupboard Man" "First Love, Last Rites" "Disguises". ... Reception: McEwan's collection was well-received by critics. In the Dictionary of Literary Biography, John Fletcher explained, "Such writing would be merely sensational if it were not, like Kafka's, pointed, so accurate, so incapable indeed of being appalled. In contemporary writing one has to turn to French literature to encounter a similar contrast between the elegance of the language and the disturbing quality of the material; in writing in English McEwan is wholly unique."[3] Critic Robert Towers described McEwan's England in The New York Review of Books as a "flat, rubble-strewn wasteland, populated by freaks and monsters, most of them articulate enough to tell their own stories with mesmerizing narrative power and an unfaltering instinct for the perfect, sickening detail"; Towers called the collection "possibly the most brilliantly perverse and sinister batch of short stories to come out of England since Angus Wilson's The Wrong Set."[4] Film adaptations: The title story was adapted for a 1997 film of the same name. The film stars Natasha Gregson Wagner as Sissel and Giovanni Ribisi as Joey. It was directed by Jesse Peretz. "Butterflies" has been adapted twice for cinema. In 1988 by Wolfgang Becker under the German title Schmetterlinge and in 2005 by Max Jacoby under its original English title. "Solid Geometry" was also adapted by Channel 4 in 2002 into a short film of the same name. This adaptation was directed by Denis Lawson and stars Ewan McGregor as Phil and Ruth Millar as Maisie.
