I hide my documents in many different places on my computer, because I often write things that I would never want anybody to read, at least unedited, and I'm paranoid that someone might figure out what the password to my computer is and maliciously read my Word documents. So a lot of the time I lose things I've written and
or completely forget about them.
What a joy it is to read a book that shocks one into remembering just how high one's literary standards should be. . . . a tour de force by one of England's best novelists. . . . Atonement is a spectacular book; as good a novel - and more satisfying. . . - than anything McEwan has written. . . . sublimely written narrative. . . . The Dunkirk passage is a stupendous piece of writing, a set piece that could easily stand on its own.
