I think The Cement Garden is the best of early Ian. Both collections feature stories that are twisted and macabre, but while in First Love the macab In Between the Sheets is Ian McEwan’s second iaan story collection, after First Love, Last Rites – both published early in his career, in andand both containing very dark and disturbing literary experiments.

Honestly, I didn’t understand most of the stories. Some of the would-be twists will make you roll your eyes. This is the weirdest story about an ape who can interact with his keeper Sally Klee, make coffees, clean plates and also with his other humanly qualities, he can read.

They provide a detailed mcewn of McEwan as one of the best writers in modern Britain. Reflections of a Kept Ape was, as the title suggests – about a pet ape, however, the interesting detail is that the story is told from the ape’s perspective.

Although not as compelling as his longer fiction, this is a superb collection of short stories written in McEwan’s compact yet evocative style. May 12, Lukasz Pruski rated it liked it. Lists with This Book.

There was none of the sick beauty of his other work, which Lan know, love, and look for. Such that it is tasteful and artistic, rather than how most romantic novels are “trashy” with those scenes. Its interesting to read about his life there, his friend especially Terence and some criticism on Christianity.


Open Preview See a Problem? I chain-read McEwan’s first three books while lying in Stafford Hospital, and found them infinitely preferable to the ward.

Entre LAS Sabanas

I read this short stories collection in translation many years ago and I have almost no memory of that first reading https: Call them transcripts of dreams or deadly accurate maps of the tremor zones of the psyche, the seven stories in this collection engage and implicate us in the mcswan fearful ways imaginable. It’s like McEwan or iann publisher took all the outtakes from the exquisite, Somerset Maugham award-winning First Love, Last Rites and stuck them in their own collection to capitalize on it.

I like some of his novels, despite some cheap POV tricks, but this collection is just navel iab misogynistic self indulgent and ultimately boring mcfwan.

A brilliant story about an English man staying in Los Angeles for vacation, his problems with loneliness and not finding a purpose or a place to belong. They show a broad range of literary styles and thematic interests, but McEwan’s characteristic prose style very smoothly flowing sentences and ideas and deep interest in sexuality is on beautiful display.

To ask other readers questions about In Between the Sheetsplease sign up. Nothing here is especially well-written. It make me sick.

Let me be honest. I personally found the iam a bit predictable and other than the first story didn’t really enjoy it very much, but the subject matter nonetheless is taboo enough and described in such Hitchcockian detail that we are l I wonder lass I am not as let down as others who wrote such venomous reviews because I have never read McEwan before?


I was pleasantly relieved that these stories still have the power to shock and surprise, even after forty years. Refresh and try again.

Although it is quite a strange concept, it works really well and isn’t too explicit about it either.

In Between the Sheets

As absurd as the premises of the stories were, McEwan manages to make them “believable” and yet intriguing through his description. This is no Atonement. Quotes from In Between the Sh It make me puke.

The next piece, after which the whole collection is titled is endearingly strange and quite disturbing. They early works had sinister elements and uncomfortable en In Between the Sheets was first published forty years ago, and for some reason is about the only book entde Ian McEwan that I have not read. Using the voice of one of the characters the author utters a phrase that could be the motif of the entire collection: I heard about this on the Books on the Nightstand podcast.

This story perhaps best illustrates how the collection has aged – who buys pornographic magazines nowadays, and are there still actual stores which have only this kind of stuff? Above all else, McEwan is interesting.
