Ian McEwan has earned international acclaim for his writing and is considered one of England’s best contemporary novelists. In Enduring Love, he sets a tale of obsession and desperation spinning amidst one man’s comfortable British world. On a sunny afternoon, the middle-aged writer Joe Rose and his wife look up from their picnic in the countryside to see an elderly man desperately trying to anchor his giant helium balloon. Running to help, Joe is joined by other bystanders. But from that fateful day, one of them, Jed Parry, will begin to stalk Joe. Driven by religious zeal and misdirected love, the strange young man will slowly unravel each strand of Joe’s life. Perfectly capturing the moments when a familiar world begins to shift out of balance, this first-person narrative traces Joe’s growing unease and frustration. As Joe watches his marriage, his profession, and his character dissolve, Enduring Love fills with psychological tension and emotional suspense.
