Why is this interesting? - The Arctic Edition

A novel that features Svalbard and its doomsday vault.

From the Booker Prize winner and bestselling author of Atonement, this "totally gripping and entirely hilarious" novel (The Wall Street Journal) traces the arc of a Nobel Prize-winning physicist’s ambitions and self-deception. Dr. Michael Beard’s best work is behind him. Trading on his reputation, he speaks for enormous fees, lends his name to the letterheads of renowned scientific institutions, and halfheartedly heads a government-backed initiative tackling global warming. Meanwhile, Michael’s fifth marriage is floundering due to his incessant womanizing. When his professional and personal worlds collide in a freak accident, an opportunity presents itself for Michael to extricate himself from his marital problems, reinvigorate his career, and save the world from environmental disaster. But can a man who has made a mess of his life clean up the messes of humanity? Don't miss Ian McEwan's new novel, Lessons.
