Few novelists encapsulate moral dilemmas in fiction as adroitly and eloquently as Ian McEwan. His novels dramatise situations of extreme ethical ambiguity which provoke in his characters and in his readers the need for nuanced responses. In his new novel, The Children Act, a leading High Court judge renowned for her fierce intelligence and sensitivity is called on to try an urgent case in which a seventeen-year-old boy is refusing the medical treatment that could save his life. Should a secular court overrule sincerely held faith when a life is at risk? The clash of religious beliefs and adult responsibility are delicately explored in this new novel by one of the finest writers currently working in English.
