First Love, Last Rites

Under Ian McEwan's manipulations, depravity may take on the guise of innocence and butterflies can become sinister. With equal power, he can show a child's life become macabre, or distil the awakening sensations of first love, tracing its ritual initiations and infusing them with a luxuriant sensual imagery.
