Podrobný popis:

Amsterdam - Ian McEwan. On a chilly February day two old friends meet in the throng outside a crematorium to pay their last respects to Molly Lane. Both Clive Linleyand Vernon Halliday had been Molly's lovers in the days before they reached their current eminence, Clive as Britain's most successful modern composer, Vernon as editor of the quality broadsheet, The Judge.Gorgeous, feisty Molly had had other lovers too, notably Julian Garmony, Foreign Secretary, a notorious right-winger tipped to be the next prime minister. In the days that follow Molly's funeral Clive and Vernon will make a pact that will have consequences neither has foreseen. Each will make a disastrous moral decision, their friendship will be tested to its limits and Julian Garmony will be fighting for his political life. A contemporary morality tale that is as profound asit is witty, this short novel is perhaps the most purely enjoyable fiction Ian McEwan has ever written. And why Amsterdam? What happens there to Clive and Vernon is the most delicious shock in a novel brimming with surprises. Amsterdam - Ian McEwan od nakladatelství Vintage/Arrow (UK) v kategorii | English literature | Fiction and Literature za skvělé ceny na e-shopu Knihydobrovsky.cz    When good-time, fortysomething Molly Lane dies of an unspecified degenerative illness, her many friends and numerous lovers are led to think about their own mortality. Vernon Halliday, editor of the upmarket newspaper the Judge, persuades his old friend Clive Linley, a self-indulgent composer of some reputation, to enter into a euthanasia pact with him. Should either of them be stricken with such an illness, the other will bring about his death. From this point onward we are in little doubt as to Amsterdam's outcome—it's only a matter of who will kill whom. In the meantime, compromising photographs of Molly's most distinguished lover, foreign secretary Julian Garmony, have found their way into the hands of the press, and as rumors circulate he teeters on the edge of disgrace. However, this is McEwan, so it is no surprise to find that the rather unsavory Garmony comes out on top. Ian McEwan is master of the writer's craft, and while this is the sort of novel that wins

prizes, his characters remain curiously soulless amidst the twists and turns of plot. Ein Politiker und ein Komponist haben eines gemein. Sie hatten dieselbe Frau zur Geliebten. Bei deren Begräbnis sehen sie sich wieder und schließen einen Pakt: Sollte einer von ihnen unheilbar erkranken, soll der andere das Leiden abkürzen. Bald werden beide vor schwerwiegende Entscheidungen gestellt, ihr Freundschaftspakt entwickelt eine gefährliche Dynamik.
