šŸŽ¹Ian McEwan on Lessonsļæ½ā€Ŗļæ½ā€¬ Shakespeare and Company: Writers, Books and Paris

    • Books

Lessons, Ian McEwanā€™s new novel, works from an intimate perspective, but on an epic scale. We accompany Roland Baines at different moments of his lifeā€”military brat, baby boomer, failed poet, pubescent boarder, single father, lounge pianist for hireā€”as he lives and relives some of the experiencesā€”both domestic and world-historicalā€”that moulded him. But as the years go by, and Rolandā€™s sense of exactly how he was shaped and by whom changes, we readers come to understand how much our own apprehension of the past is tinted by our experience of the present.
