2010 Galaxy British Book Award Winner

This year’s Galaxy British Book Awards have been awarded within multiple categories but the one that most intrigues me is the Galaxy Book of the Year.


The Galaxy Book of the Year winner:

On Chesil Beach by Ian McEwan

Bookbrowse.com had this to say about McEwan’s novel:

“Unfolding with the mesmerizing, deeply human storytelling that has made Ian McEwan one of the most beloved authors of his generation, On Chesil Beach captures one night and two lifetimes, wound into a stunning turning point. In taut yet poignantly written scenes, newlyweds Florence and Edward navigate their wedding night, coping with their greatest fears and wishes. The year is 1962; they have been steeped in a culture whose expectations for composure and maturity are high, with roles clearly defined and information about the mysteries of marriage—sexual or otherwise—rarely shared. As we watch husband and wife experience their first nuptial hours, On Chesil Beach illuminates the fragile dance of intimacy, a haunting ode to the true selves we so often refuse to reveal.”
