Its interesting to read about his life there, his friend especially Terence and some criticism on Christianity. Above all else, McEwan is interesting. A wealthy entrr finds the perfect mistress, leading him to hell itself. I enjoyed finding the flashes of brilliance in this slim volume of short stories.
Although it is quite a strange concept, it works really well and isn’t too explicit about it either. Jun 08, Michelle rated it really liked it. Sabans of these stories seemed to be afterthoughts, or B-sides, if you will, but bad B-sides.
Entre LAS Sabanas : Ian McEwan :
Nov 18, Ryan Williams rated it cmewan liked it. The next piece, after which the whole collection is titled is endearingly strange and quite disturbing.
More technically assured than the first collection, and with more bite. I like some of his novels, despite some cheap POV tricks, but this collection is just navel gazing misogynistic self sabanax and ultimately boring stories.
Each of the “freaks and monsters” that populate McEwan’s England have a unsettling story to tell.
Each of these stories pushes some kind of assumption, sex-related. Finally, Psychopoliswhich coolly begins with a woman asking the narrator to chain her to the bed, zabanas loses its grip on the reader and devolves into a parody of Southern California late s parties. The second story, Reflections of a Kept Ape is one of my two favorites. Want to Read Currently Reading Read.
But ,cewan is okay, mcfwan if you don’t go entfe expecting something life-changing, then it is easy to find reward in these stories.
Dec 23, Andrea rated it did not like it Shelves: May 12, Lukasz Pruski rated it liked it. I become more intrigued with McEwan with each work I read and look forward to delving into his more celebrat This is Ian McEwan’s second publication and, as with his first endeavor “First Love, Last Rites”is a collection of short stories.
At once chilling and beguiling, and written in prose of lacerating beauty, In Between the Sheets is a tour de force by one of England’s most acclaimed practitioners of literary unease. Its about a millionaire who buys a perfect mistress and soon he is enveloped in jealousy and despair.

Entre LAS Sabanas
Although not as bizarre as the FIrst Love collection, you can still marvel at the way his mind works and the multiple subjects and themes he considers. I was surprised tha This one really should have been left in the laundry basket. Somehow I missed it in the early years and then there must have been a gap when it was not easily available, so when I saw an old second-hand copy I grabbed it with some delight.
Probably I prefer these ugly and ‘perverted’ ’70s to the ’70s described by McEwan in ‘Sweet tooth’ I had forgotten how dark some of the early McEwan writing used to be, having become comfortable with his more recent novels. A jaded millionaire buys himself the perfect mistress and plunges into a hell of jealousy an Call them transcripts of dreams or deadly accurate maps of the tremor zones of the psyche, the seven stories in this collection engage and implicate us in the most fearful ways imaginable.
These stories are diverse, odd, occasionally obtuse and, at all times, engaging. Weird, unique and introspective.
He is a young writer in these stories, and they are missing some of the gravity that comes in his later works. A two-timing pornographer becomes an unwilling object in the fantasies of one of his victims. Honestly, I didn’t understand most of the stories. It has been described as reptilian, or as a repulsive inorganic stench, or again, as a sharp, womanly odor I wonder if I am not as let down as others who wrote such venomous reviews because I have never read McEwan before?
Joseph Spinale hmm what goes to and fro. I never understand people who find McEwan’s early work disgusting, ‘shocking’ etc. Of course there are flaws. Paperbackpages. I find the fourth story, Dead as They Come the best. This was supposed to be a sexy read and that alone made me bypass many of the other no doubt excellent books I brought back from that excellent bookstore to read this one first. Reflections of a Kept Ape was, as the title suggests – about a pet ape, however, the interesting detail is that the story is told from the ape’s perspective.
A brilliant story about an English man staying in Los Angeles for vacation, his problems with loneliness and not finding a purpose or a place dabanas belong. I guess I have a very different view from most people here. There is no common motif or theme in this collection of seven stories. In an attempt to be more dntre, I’d la this is not McEwan’s finest hour, though a couple of the stories are definitely worth reading.
