I've been reading one of my Xmas presents, Ian McEwan's short story collection First Love, Last Rights, which is very creepy. I am so glad I read Atonement and worked my way backward, otherwise I would have written I.M. off altogether for his fetid and adolescent topics. He has certainly grown as a writer, and he seems to be less repulsed by, more compassionate towards, his female characters lately.
I didn't mention that I also received the latest Imperial Teen CD as a Christmas gift from Nan. It's a lovely album, all new wavey and fun. I also enjoyed the Spoon CD on first go-round.
