We’re adding another big name to our most anticipated releases calendar: Ian McEwan will return with Sweet Tooth (Nan Talese) on November 13. (In the US, at least—the UK pub date is August.)
Set in 1972, the book stars an intelligent bibliophile and Cambridge grad, Serena, who is recruited for the British secret service. As luck would have it, her first assignment has her tailing a writer on a mission codenamed “Sweet Tooth.” As she gets to know him and his work, she discovers she has a taste for both. Can she reconcile her desires with her mission?
