A most beautiful first Impression of the first edition in Fine condition in alike dustjacket. SIGNED by author Ian McEwan directly on the title page. Rather scarce to find in collectible condition, let alone fine.
McEwan's second novel after The Cement Garden, the story of Mary and Colin, an English couple in Venice who meet Robert and Caroline. When they drug Mary and give Colin the choice to allow Robert to do anything to him and save Mary's life or let her die, Colin chooses to save Mary, and, when she awakes, he is dead.
Basis for the 1990 movie starring Rupert Everett, Christopher Walken, Helen Mirren and Natasha Richardson.
