L'intérêt de l'enfant : roman by Ian McEwan( Book )
1 edition published in 2015 in French and held by 34 libraries worldwide
"A l'âge de cinquante-neuf ans, Fiona Maye est une brillante magistrate à la Haute Cour de Londres où elle exerce en tant que spécialiste du droit de la famille. Passionnée, parfois même hantée par son travail, elle en délaisse sa vie personnelle et son mari Jack. Surtout depuis cette nouvelle affaire : Adam Henry, un adolescent de dix-sept ans atteint de leucémie, risque la mort et les croyances religieuses de sa famille interdisent la transfusion sanguine qui pourrait le sauver. Avant de rendre son jugement, Fiona décide soudainement de se rendre à l'hôpital pour rencontrer Adam. Mais cette entrevue, au cours de laquelle elle découvre un jeune homme romantique, poète et musicien, la trouble. Désormais impliquée personnellement, la magistrate décide de tout faire pour sauver Adam. Seulement sa décision n'est pas sans conséquences et elle se retrouve unie au garçon par un lien étrange qui pourrait bien causer leur perte. Dans ce court roman, Ian McEwan allie avec justesse la froideur de la justice à la poésie et à la musicalité qui imprègnent la vie des personnages. Dans un style limpide, il construit une de ces ambiances oppressantes dont il a la clé et fait preuve d'une complexité thématique impressionnante. A la lecture, les certitudes se dérobent : où s'arrête et où commence l'intérêt de l'enfant ?" [résumé de la 4e de couverture]

From a commanding new voice in fiction comes a novel as perceptive as it is generous: a portrait of an American family trying to cope in our world today, a story of choices and doubts and transgressions. The Hardings are teetering on the brink. Elson -- once one of Houston's most promising architects, who never quite lived up to expectations -- is recently divorced from his wife of thirty years, Cadence. Their grown son, Richard, is still living at home: driving his mother's minivan, working at a local coffee shop, resisting the career as a writer that beckons him. But when Chloe Harding gets kicked out of her East Coast college, for reasons she can't explain to either her parents or her older brother, the Hardings' lives start to unravel. Chloe returns to Houston, but the dangers set in motion back at school prove inescapable. Told with piercing insight, taut psychological suspense, and the wisdom of a true master of character, this is a novel about the vagaries of love and family, about betrayal and forgiveness, about the possibility and impossibility of coming home
