Abstract

Chapter Summary: In the early 1970s, Ian McEwan’s first published stories appeared in the United Kingdom and the United States, some of which remain uncollected. This stage of his career is reflected but distorted in the biography of the writer Tom Haley in McEwan’s Sweet Tooth (2012), a complex, polyreferential, sly, refracted novel whose debts range from non-fiction works like Frances Stonor Saunders’ Who Paid the Piper?: CIA and the Cultural Cold War (1999) to Edmund Spenser’s piece of late sixteenth-century juvenilia ‘Ruines of Rome’.
