My Purple Scented Novel by Ian McEwan

A special thank you to NetGalley and Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

McEwan pens a wonderful short story about the perfect literary crime to celebrate his 70th birthday!

Written as a confession from Parker Sparrow about his friendship and betrayal of celebrated novelist, Jocelyn Tarbet, this short story is riveting from the from the first line.  He is so clever, McEwan actually makes you root for the narrator even though he has plagiarized his best friend.  Gah!  So brilliant.

The writing is razor sharp, witty, and clever.  Simply fab!
