"Waiting On" Wednesday: Sweet Tooth

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted here, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Sweet Tooth
By Ian McEwan
Publication Date: November 13

From Amazon:

Cambridge student Serena Frome’s beauty and intelligence make her the ideal recruit for MI5. The year is 1972. The Cold War is far from over. England’s legendary intelligence agency is determined to manipulate the cultural conversation by funding writers whose politics align with those of the government. The operation is code named “Sweet Tooth.”

Serena, a compulsive reader of novels, is the perfect candidate to infiltrate the literary circle of a promising young writer named Tom Haley. At first, she loves his stories. Then she begins to love the man. How long can she conceal her undercover life? To answer that question, Serena must abandon the first rule of espionage: trust no one.

I feel a bit guilty admitting this, but I've never read McEwan. Perhaps this will be the book to cure me of that affliction! Sounds good.

Katja Weinert said...

I'll wait to see what you make of it, I find that with McEwan that I either love or loathe his novels. He's probably the only author who affects me in this way. Makes it difficult because I'm tempted to avoid his books altogether, and then I'm reminded of the ones I did like.

Laura Hartley said...

Never heard of this book, but it sounds like something I'd really enjoy! Thanks for sharing :)
