A best-selling work of wit from the Booker Prize-winning author, Solar brilliantly traces the arc of a Nobel Prize-winning physicist’s ambitions and self-deception.
Dr. Michael Beard’s best work is behind him. Trading on his reputation, he speaks for enormous fees, lends his name to the letterheads of renowned scientific institutions, and halfheartedly heads a government-backed initiative tackling global warming. Meanwhile, Michael’s fifth marriage is floundering due to his incessant womanizing. When his professional and personal worlds collide in a freak accident, an opportunity presents itself for Michael to extricate himself from his marital problems, reinvigorate his career, and save the world from environmental disaster. But can a man who has made a mess of his life clean up the messes of humanity?

Subpar for Ian
OK but not up to his usual high standards. Hard to keep up with Black Dogs, Saturday, Amsterdam, etc....EAF
Solar Energy with a Twist
Who would have thought reading about an over-sexed Nobel Prize winning physicist could be so much fun. Had no idea McEwan could be this hilarious.
