New York Times best-selling author Ian McEwan's novels have won such prestigious awards as the Booker Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award for his modern masterpiece, Atonement. Saturday further proves The New Republic's claim that McEwan is "one of the most gifted literary storytellers alive." Neurosurgeon Henry Perowne enjoys life immensely and considers himself fortunate to love the woman he's married to. But on this day, a chance encounter will turns his life upside-down.

Professional reviews

"SATURDAY, brilliantly and convincingly read by Steven Crossley, is the lengthy reflection of neurosurgeon Dr. Henry Perwone, a complex man who considers his life with his wife, two talented adult children, and an immensely successful medical career. After the life-altering terrorist attacks on 9/11, he asks himself, "What does it all mean?" Listeners will appreciate Crossley's subtle vocal shadings and the great care he gives to the spoken word. Those familiar with Virginia Woolf's MRS. DALLOWAY will find that book's echo here. Ultimately, this account of personal reexamination is not only sobering but is perhaps a wake-up call for many of us--a reminder of the necessity of recasting what one has previously deemed important and secure.
