In Between the Sheets

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. A man cheating on two nurses is about to find himself undergoing an impromptu castration, or worse, at the hands of the women he has deceived. Feb 11, Jenny Reading Envy rated it liked it Shelves: I enjoyed other stories in the book too, but the two mentioned above were ones that seemed to have lodged themselves in my brain.

Entre LAS Sabanas

Weird, unique and introspective. Nothing about this is sexy at all. Each of these stories seemed to be afterthoughts, or B-sides, if you will, but bad B-sides. Still, for all the youthful mistakes, the literary genius comes through without trouble. And in the course of a weekend with his teenage daughter, a guilt-ridden father discovers the depths of his own blundering innocence. He seems a throwback to the times when writers labored over every word and sentence and I appreciate the labor.


Refresh and try again.

This particular story is erotic, sexual stuffs and has what-will-happens-in-the-end kind of feeling. I never understand people who find McEwan’s early work disgusting, ‘shocking’ etc.

The second story, Reflections of a Kept Ape is one of my two favorites.

May 29, William Koon rated it liked sabznas. It is a cautionary tale for men about the dangers of double timing: Here, it works only some of the time. McEwan lives in London. The remaining stories are challenging and uncomfortable but in a way that rewards the reader with a deeper understanding of McEwan’s writing and the characters themselves.

Entre LAS Sabanas : Ian McEwan :

Its about a man working in a porn shop owned by his brother and his juggling love affairs with two jan which ultimately ends in terrifying circumstances. I personally found the book 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 if I am not as let down as others who wrote such venomous reviews because I have never read McEwan before?

I think The Cement Garden is the best of early Ian. They early works had sinister elements and uncomfortable endings.

Quirky and experimental near-erotica by a young writer who would soon become a masterful novelist. This is the second book written by Ian McEwan, which includes 7 very disturbing short stories.

Above all else, McEwan is interesting. Some of the endings left me completely hanging with no clue about what just happened. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. I become more intrigued with McEwan with each work I read and look forward to delving into his more celebrated works Saturday, Amsteram and Atonement. Although not as compelling as his longer fiction, this is a superb collection of short stories written in McEwan’s compact yet evocative style.


A jaded millionaire buys himself the perfect mistress and plunges into a hell of jealousy and despair. The only commonality seems to be the author’s curiosity as to how far can he go with narrative creativity. I heard about this on the Books on the Nightstand entge.

Its about a millionaire who buys a perfect mistress and soon he is enveloped in jealousy and despair. There was none of the sick beauty of his other mcewann, which I know, love, and look for.

Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. The stories in this short collection of seven are no exception. Es fresco y divertido.

Want to Read saving…. Jun 08, Michelle rated it really liked it. Auf jeden Fall lesenswert. These stories are diverse, odd, occasionally obtuse and, at all times, engaging. More technically assured than the first collection, and with more bite. Reflection of a kept Ape:
