On Chesil Beach, McEwan’s latest novel, is a beach read for the anti-chick-lit set: It’s a touching, old-fashioned yarn about a young couple, honeymooning on the Dorset coast, who both nurse private, painful anxieties about consummating their love. McEwan has a masterly sense of the frenzied desires of youth, and his sense of nostalgia never devolves into sentimentality. Warning: As he reads, you may experience a few wistful flashbacks of your own.
