Annotations by Ian McEwan


Title page 'Subtitle in first draft was "The Spoiler" - given to me by Annalena, then given back for her to use for herfirst novel.'


Beneath dedication 'My Dutch publisher and his wife, my Amsterdam friends since 1973. Jaco published me in volume form (short stories) before the English edition was available.'


Flyleaf 'This novel was written in the months immediately following the completion of Enduring Love. As that novel was being published, I was correcting the proofs for this - a luxury I don't think I'll ever repeat.'


p.3 [on the 'former lovers of Molly Lane'] 'They loved her? Or they "belonged" to her? If the second, then Lane's? Both. Long exchange with Tim Garton Ash on this subject.'
