Synopsis

This book is the number one Sunday Times best-seller. A Daily Telegraph / Spectator / Sunday Times / The Times Book of the Year. Trudy has betrayed her husband, John. She's still in the marital home - a dilapidated, priceless London townhouse - but not with John. Instead, she's with his brother, the profoundly banal Claude, and the two of them have a plan. But there is a witness to their plot: the inquisitive, nine-month-old resident of Trudy's womb. Told from a perspective unlike any other, Nutshell is a classic tale of murder and deceit from one of the world's master storytellers.

Staff Choice

Once again Ian McEwan, demonstrates why he is the master of contemporary English fiction with this bold novel told from inside the womb, as an unborn baby listens in on the plot to murder his father. Concise, sharp, and surprising, Nutshell is unlike any murder-thriller novel you may have read before, the language is crisp, yet luxurious, with every word exactly where it should be.

Gary, Buying Team

Nutshell is an engrossing story of murder and revenge, told by a narrator with a unique perspective, unlike any in recent literature. Elegant plotting, tight characterisation and a hefty dose of Hitchcockian tension make this a standout novel of the year, one bound to cause conversation and discussion.
