Selected for the Man Booker Prize 2005 Longlist. The novel is set within a single day in Feb 2003 as war in Iraq looms. A successful doctor unwittingly offends a small time thug who that evening appears at his house bent on revenge. We think it's superb and the publishers says it's set to be huge â€“ so read the first chapter and decide yourself
Saturday by Ian McEwan
A minor accident in his car brings him into a confrontation with a small-time thug called Baxter. To Perowne's professional eye, something appears to be profoundly wrong with this young man. Baxter, in his turn, believes the surgeon has humiliated him, and visits the opulent Perowne home that evening, during a family reunion - with savage consequences that will lead Henry Perowne to deploy all his skills to keep this doomed figure alive.
