McEwan's novel "Amsterdam" ist definetely one of my favorites. It
is an easy pleasant reading written in a funny style, altough the McEwan deals with serious problems as ethical failure, the problem of the incongruity of private and public personae and finally, a self-reflexive account on the production of art and the Romantic idea of the poet, which is not compatible with the post-modern world. We deal with persons, who do not only misread their relationship but themselves. the novel is also an comment on the successful babyboomer's in England who actually fail in their ethical responsibilities and therefore are not fit for survival.
