Two-time Booker Prize winner Ian McEwan explores the fragility, complexity, and occasional absurdity of human interaction in this engaging tale. "Psychopolis" opens with an Englishman in Los Angeles chaining his feminist lover to the bed-at her request. Then the always surprising McEwan dials down the sexuality, setting his characters on a path toward the Englishman's farewell party, at which tolerance for dissenting opinions is put to the test.
