These three brilliant screenplays are uniquely accessible cameos of modern fiction as they move from the reassuring naturalism of our most familiar medium to the harrowing ambiguities of McEwan's uncompromising vision of reality. Powerful, compelling entertainment, the dramas collected in this book represent the highest standard of screenplay technique and artistry.

Ian McEwan

Ian McEwan is an English novelist and screenwriter. In 2008, The Times featured him on its list of "The 50 greatest British writers since 1945" and the Daily Telegraph ranked him number 19 in its list of the "100 most powerful people in British culture".

McEwan began his career writing sparse, Gothic short stories. His first two novels, The Cement Garden and The Comfort of Strangers, earned him the nickname "Ian Macabre". These were followed by three novels of some success in the 1980s and early 1990s.

His novel Enduring Love was adapted into a film of the same name. He won the Man Booker Prize with Amsterdam. His following novel, Atonement, garnered acclaim and was adapted into an Oscar-winning film starring Keira Knightley and James McAvoy. His later novels have included The Children Act, Nutshell and Machines Like Me.
