Ian's Interview on Radio 4

Ian McEwan was interviewed this morning on Radio 4. He has a novel out called Solar. The protagonist is a scientist, a Nobel Prize winner of course, and climate change is the science behind it. I checked the reviews on Amazon. Mixed doesn't begin to cover it! Looking forward to getting my hands on a copy though.
