Staff Reviews


In interesting take on Shakespeare’s Hamlet, where the crown Prince of Denmark is actually an unborn baby who overhears his mother’s plot to kill his father. A unique stream of consciousness that draws you further in with every turn of the page. Only a master wordsmith like McEwen could create such a weird story that you somehow can’t put down.

— From Stephanie

Description


New from the bestselling author of Atonement and The Children Act

Trudy has betrayed her husband, John. She's still in the marital home--a dilapidated, priceless London townhouse--but John's not there. 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.
