I’m Jim McKeown, welcome to Likely Stories, a weekly review of fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and biographies.
If you are a long-time listener to Likely Stories, you might know, Ian McEwan is one of my most favorite novelists. Ian has a rapier wit when he needs it, and he is a writer of renown. I have read almost all his novels, and I never—for even a moment—have lost the depth and expertise of his writing. His latest novel, The Cockroach, is satire of the highest order. If you are not familiar with McEwan, pick up a copy of any of his nineteen novels.
