PINEAPPLE LUMPS & SWEET TOOTH THE BOOK ABOUT NOVELIST SPIES BY IAN McEWAN
Sweet Tooth the book by Ian McEwan. A guy on TV today is talking up author Ian McEwan’s new book, Sweet Tooth. “Well conceived, beautifully delivered,” is what the book critic toff so eloquently says about the book.
The UK Guardian’s Julie Myerson writes: “It may seem preposterous at first, but stick with this playful Russian doll of a novel and the rewards are immense. It’s more than 20 years since Ian McEwan published The Innocent, a tale of a gauche young Englishman failing miserably (and dangerously) as a cold-war spy in Berlin.
McEwan’s latest novel may be set in 1972, with the cold war shuffling through its final lacklustre phase, Sweet Tooth is playful, comic, preposterous even.” The toff book critic reviewer said the novel is about recruiting writers to become novelist spies to counteract the propaganda that exists in society.” That’s too funny, as most of us know, it’s the other way round.
