Title Profile & Character Information

Solar

Annotation
In McEwan's latest, a Nobel prize-winning physicist gets slashed by the media after he says that most physicists are men because of differences between male and female brains. Just as McEwan himself got slashed by the media when he said last summer that Islamism was out to create a society he found morally offensive. Bound to be controversial.
