(No reviews yet) Write a Review

'Wonderful... Exquisite... Devastating' - Independent on Sunday

'Exquisitely crafted' - Evening Standard

It is July 1962. Edward and Florence, young innocents married that morning, arrive at a hotel on the Dorset coast. At dinner in their rooms they struggle to suppress their private fears of the wedding night to come and, unbeknownst to them both, the events of the evening will haunt them for the rest of their lives.

'Superb... The protagonists have everything to lose, and their faltering journey towards a point of no return is conjured into life by McEwan with irresistible subtlety, tact and force' - Financial Times

'A wonderful and moving portrait of a specific time, and two of its hostages, and of how to make a mess of love' - Irish Times

'On Chesil Beach is more than an event. It is a masterpiece' - Karl Miller, Times Literary Supplement
