1 6846 McEWAN, Ian Atonement
Hardcover Knopf: Toronto; 2001; First Canadian Edition; First Printing Very Good+ in Near Fine dust wrapper 
Spine ends bumped, faint smudges to bottom page edges (not remainder marks), some deckled edges faintly creased. Unclipped dust wrapper has faintest edgewear. A very nice copy. ; First Canadian edition published simultaneously with first British edition. Basis for 2007 film of the same name starring Keira Knightly and James McAvoy.; 'On the hottest day of the summer of 1935, thirteen-year-old Briony Tallis sees her sister Cecilia strip off her clothes and plunge into the fountain in the garden of their country house. Watching her is Robbie Turner, son of the Tallis's cleaning lady, whose education has been subsidized by Cecilia's and Briony's father, and who, like Cecilia, has recently come down from Cambridge. By day's end, their lives will be changed - irrevocably.

Robbie and Cecilia will have crossed a boundary they had not imagined at its start. And Briony will have witnessed mysteries, seen an unspeakable word, and committed a crime for which she will spend the rest of her life trying to atone...

Brilliant and utterly enthralling in its depiction of love and war and class and childhood and England, "An Atonement "is a profound - and profoundly moving - exploration of shame and forgiveness, of atonement and of the possibility of absolution.' Dust wrapper matches sample image.
