On Chesil Beach. Signed Limited Edition in slipcase

On Chesil Beach - Ian McEwan Well, that was about the biggest helping of blues porridge I've eaten in a long time. I don't normally like Ian McEwan much, but this one had all the right elements. I especially liked the way he went back into their early lives to show how they were almost doomed to fail at communication and intimacy.I have to add that I also found a delightful bit of humor early in the book, when Florence was all worked up in her mind about "penetration" and "entering." I was giggling at her silly obsession with the mechanics of sex.
