Dealer Notes
First edition. McEwan’s 2010 novel won the 2010 Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse Prize, and is centred on the unattractive anti-hero Michael Beard, a physicist and Nobel Prize winner, and takes climate change as its theme: ‘[r]anging from the Arctic Circle to the deserts of New Mexico, Solar is a serious and darkly satirical novel, showing human frailty struggling with the most pressing and complex problem of our time. A story of one man’s greed and self-deception, it is a profound and stylish new work from one of the world’s great writers’ (dustwrapper blurb).
