Description

Winner of such prestigious honors as the Booker Prize and Whitbread Award, Ian McEwan is justifiably regarded as a modern master. Set in 1972, Sweet Tooth follows Cambridge student Serena Frome, whose intelligence and beauty land her a job with England's intelligence agency, MI5. In an attempt to monitor writers' politics, MI5 tasks Serena with infiltrating the literary circle of author Tom Healy. But soon matters of trust and identity subvert the operation.

Professional reviews

"Ian McEwan uses the classic spy novel plot to examine the career of the lovely and brilliant Serena Frome. Narrator Juliet Stevenson's crisp, cool tone matches the author's descriptions of Serena's evolution in the murky world of espionage. McEwan's exploration of the existential angst of living a shadow life, necessary for spies and their targets, is engaging and ultimately heartbreaking. Serena's assignment, to infiltrate the literary circle of her subject, Tom Healy, gives readers insight into both writers and the nature of the writing life. Stevenson portrays Serena with subtle emotion and deliberate pacing, allowing the events of her life to elicit the listener's responses. R.O. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
