Includes an exclusive interview with the author.
Universally acclaimed as one of the world's greatest novelists, Ian McEwan is a Booker Prize-winning, best-selling literary master. His fluid style and wicked sense of humor are on display in Solar, a satirical tale of human weakness and greed.
Nobel Prize-winning physicist Michael Beard is fast approaching 60. Although he's not longer an academic titan, his reputation allows him to collect huge speaking fees and impassively head a government program to battle global warming. His personal life is another matter. An incorrigible womanizer, he has chased off four spouses with his affairs, and now his fifth wife has turned the tables on him. But suddenly and unexpectedly, Michael finds himself with an opportunity to reinvigorate his career and possibly save Earth from environmental disaster.
