    In Atonement, three children lose their innocence, as the sweltering summer heat bears down on the hottest day in 1935, and their lives are changed forever. Cecilia Tallis is of England's priviledged class; Robbie Turner is the housekeeper's son. In their moment of intimate surrender, they are interrupted by Cecilia's hyperimaginative and scheming 13-year-old sister, Briony. And as chaos consumes the family, Briony commits a crime, the guilt of which she shall carry throughout her life.

    From the best-selling author of Atonement, Nutshell is a classic story of murder and deceit, told by a narrator with a perspective and voice unlike any in recent literature. A bravura performance, it is the finest recent work from a true master. To be bound in a nutshell, see the world in two inches of ivory, in a grain of sand. Why not, when all of literature, all of art, of human endeavour is just a speck in the universe of possible things?

    Fiona Maye is a High Court judge in London presiding over cases in family court. She is fiercely intelligent, well respected, and deeply immersed in the nuances of her particular field of law. Often the outcome of a case seems simple from the outside, the course of action to ensure a child's welfare obvious. But the law requires more rigor than mere pragmatism, and Fiona is expert in considering the sensitivities of culture and religion when handing down her verdicts.

    Fiona Maye ist eine angesehene Richterin am High Court in London, bekannt für ihre Gewissenhaftigkeit. Mit ihrem Mann Jack, einem Geschichtsprofessor, ist sie seit mehr als dreißig Jahren verheiratet - harmonisch, wenn auch in letzter Zeit vielleicht ein wenig distanziert. So fällt Fiona aus allen Wolken, als er ihr eröffnet, dass er ihren Segen für eine außereheliche Affäre will. Genau in diesem Moment wird ihr ein eiliger Fall vorgelegt: Ein 17-jähriger Junge, der an Leukämie leidet, benötigt dringend eine Bluttransfusion. Aber seine Familie - Zeugen Jehovas - lehnt das aus religiösen Gründen ab.
