About: The whole book is composed of eight short stories, from the perspective of eight males in different stages of childhood, adolescence and youth, taking the experience of the connection between consciousness and subconsciousness as the revealing object. Sometimes it is absurd, sometimes sad, sometimes gentle, sometimes scary, Sometimes magic, but infinitely close to the real, close to everyone's heart. McEwan has always been good at polishing dark subjects with calm and delicate brush strokes, giving it an exquisite and unparalleled texture. Each of the eight stories is like a face of a black crystal prism, reflecting the various demons and nightmares that may be trapped by ordinary human nature in daily life. The boundary between flat ground and abyss, life and death, reality and fantasy, ethics and perversion seems to be thin and silky, which makes people feel surprised or cold after seeing it, and at the same time feel that its magic power is irresistible. With such a short space, McEwan was surprised and conquered the literary world. Each article recorded is a masterpiece, unforgettable. This book is the best entry point to read and understand this talented writer. "Initial Love, Last Ritual" is McEwan's debut and famous work.
