Critical Praise

"A novel of great sureness at the level of both action and language."

——The Guardian

"In Saturday he is at his best - thoughtful, eloquent, yet restrained. The novel has all the technical assurance of its predecessors, and suggests as well a newly political sensibility and a seductive, Joycean attention to the textures of normality."

——The Financial Times

"Ian McEwan is certainly operating at the height of his formidable powers. . . . Everyone should read Saturday."

——The Times

"The author's mature attention illuminates equally everything it falls on....this [is a] profound and urgent novel."

——The Observer
