Ian McEwan's New Novel To Take On 'Perverse' Religious Parents

Posted at 7:58AM Tuesday 15 Apr 2014

Ian McEwan will publish his latest novel, The Children Act, on September 4.

The Children Act will centre on a legal case involving two parents who refuse medical treatment for their sick son due to their religious beliefs. Taking the perspective of a female High Court judge, McEwan's 16th novel has been partly inspired by real-life cases presided over by his friends.
