Booker winner and one of Britain’s greatest modern novelists Ian McEwan talks about his life and writing career.

McEwan has written a series of bestselling, award-winning and critically acclaimed novels including The Child in Time, winner of the 1987 Whitbread Novel of the Year Award, The Cement Garden, Enduring Love, Amsterdam, winner of the 1998 Booker Prize, Atonement, Saturday, winner of the 2006 James Tait Black Memorial Prize, On Chesil Beach, and Solar. Atonement and Enduring Love were both turned into successful films. A film of On Chesil Beach starring Saoirse Ronan, Emily Watson and Anne-Marie Duff is due for release this summer.

McEwan’s latest novel is Nutshell, a classic story of murder and deceit inspired by Hamlet that also includes a foetus as a voice in the story.

Here McEwan talks to journalist and LBC radio presenter Matthew Stadlen, a former BBC producer who is a regular interviewer for the Daily Telegraph and has interviewed for the BBC.
