Ian McEwan advised to not quit day job

News & Politics

Novelist McEwan has flirted with punditry while promoting his latest novel, making some specious arguments about criticism of the Iraq war. After filling McEwan's claims with holes, Novelist/blogger Chris writes: "Ambivalence is all well and good, of course, especially in a novelist, who must deal in the rich complexities and unsiftable confusions of human reality. But one's ambivalence must be informed, enlightened... there is nothing of this in McEwan's ambivalence about the Iraq inferno. (Empire Burlesque)
