Booker Prize-winning author Ian McEwan is in top form with Enduring Love. Intellectual detail and meticulous plot construction combine to create a gripping tale about — you guessed it — enduring love. The novel opens with a tragic ballooning accident that sparks one man's unsettling obsessions with Joe Rose. Joe, a cozily married scientist who believes in reason's transcendence, becomes the target of an irrationality that threatens to undo his ordered universe and beloved marriage. McEwan spools out the story with a taut and impressive command of language. Enduring Love's slow steady momentum will have you turning pages to see what happens next while slowing down to savor the ravishing prose.
