McEwan writes very disturbing short fiction. Each of these stories seemed to be afterthoughts, or B-sides, if you will, llas bad B-sides. The next piece, after which the whole collection is titled is endearingly strange and quite disturbing. I like some of his novels, despite some cheap POV tricks, but this collection is just navel gazing misogynistic self indulgent and ultimately boring stories.

This a collection of some of the early short stories of the acclaimed British writer Ian McEwan. At least this collection was mercifully short. I chain-read McEwan’s first three books while lying in Stafford Hospital, and found them infinitely preferable to the ward.

Both collections feature stories that are twisted and macabre, but while in First Love the macab In Between the Sheets is Ian McEwan’s second short story collection, after First Love, Last Rites – both published early in his career, in andand both containing very dark and disturbing literary ebtre. These stories do make for depressed reader but their realism and at the same time their dreamlike quality stand out. Marcha story about a father and lxs daughter in post-apocalyptic London: A enfre cheating on two nurses is about to find himself undergoing an impromptu castration, or worse, at the hands of the women he has deceived.


There is no common motif or theme in this collection of seven stories.

In Between the Sheets by Ian McEwan

To me it feels like incompletely complete 4. Jul 30, Stephanie Sun rated it really liked it Shelves: The opening story, Pornographyfeatures no weird and bizarre elements from other shorts – its set in the London borough of Soho, with all its filth, entrs and grime chronicled to a T.

Joseph Spinale hmm what goes to and fro.

Found myself deeply disturbed, and really, I am not easily so. 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. It has been described as reptilian, or as a repulsive inorganic stench, or again, as a sharp, womanly odor Of course there are flaws.

Auf jeden Fall lesenswert. This story perhaps best illustrates how the collection has aged – who buys pornographic magazines nowadays, and are there still actual stores which have only this kind of stuff?

As absurd as the premises of the stories were, McEwan manages to make them “believable” and yet intriguing through his description. A two-timing pornographer becomes an unwilling object in the fantasies of one of his victims. The narrator details the dynamics of his love affair: Want to Read saving…. While spending my vacation browsing its shelves my eyes fell on this collection of short stories.

Entre LAS Sabanas

McEwan manages to look at sex in a thoroughly unnerving and disturbing way while maintaining the veneer of normalcy in the stories. The collection of stories here transform the ordinary into the fantastical and grotesque but at the same time are careful treatments of marginalised characters.


These two are further character studies and both stand out because of their subject matter, but also because McEwan places the reader inside the narrators’ minds – their feelings, thoughts, insecurities, and passions are acutely and uncomfortably laid bare for the reader.

Probably I prefer these ugly and ‘perverted’ ’70s to the ’70s described by McEwan in ‘Sweet tooth’ Apr 13, Bethany rated it liked it Shelves: He was awarded a CBE in Reflection of a kept Ape: 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 :

The first piece, Pornography seems to be the most “normal” of the seven. More technically assured than the first collection, and with more bite. Although it is quite a strange concept, it works really well and isn’t too explicit about it either.

A jaded millionaire buys himself the perfect mistress and plunges into a hell of jealousy an Call them transcripts of dreams or deadly accurate maps of the tremor zones of the psyche, the seven stories in this collection engage and implicate us in the most fearful ways imaginable.

Finally, Psychopoliswhich coolly begins with a woman asking the narrator to chain her to the bed, quickly loses its grip on the reader and devolves into a parody of Mcwan California late s parties.

These characters are unafraid to tell their own stories, in perfect, bewildering candor, and ask us to examine our own consciences, ask us to find that demarkation szbanas fetish and perversion.

Although not as compelling as his longer fiction, emtre is a superb collection of short stories written in McEwan’s compact yet evocative style.

It make me puke. Also, even though it is highly sensual, the stories and scenes were very well written.
