20 Nutshell

20 Nutshell by Ian McEwan

Hardback £16.99

This book is the number one Sunday Times best-seller. A Daily Telegraph / Spectator / Sunday Times / The Times Book of the Year. Trudy has betrayed her husband, John.

She’s still in the marital home – a dilapidated, priceless London townhouse – but not with John. Instead, she’s with his brother, the profoundly banal Claude, and the two of them have a plan. But there is a witness to their plot: the inquisitive, nine-month-old resident of Trudy’s womb.

Told from a perspective unlike any other, Nutshell is a classic tale of murder and deceit from one of the world’s master storytellers.
