It's a glimpse of the glory of a starry night from the trenches of publishing.

Read it.

"Always, the victim, the stranger, the enemy and the outcast, the face in the crowd, becomes a fully realized being by the grace of fiction's magic dust - a dust whose recipe is an open secret - full attention to detail, empathy, respect."

Thank you, Ian McEwan, for this reminder of what it is to be reader, writer, human being.
