After a short time Jack runs off to the bathroom, making his father wait impatiently.

Jack mastur- bates and takes a long time to go downstairs again. Having re- turned to the garden, though, he notices his father with his face lying in the wet concrete. Later Jack notices that it was at the same time that he had stopped any acts of hygiene.

No more baths, no clean clothes. On his way to school, one of the following days afterwards, the surroundings are described for the first time.

Their house is described as looking like a little castle and as the only one in their neighbourhood that is still intact and inhabited.

The other houses have been put down for a motorway that has never been built in the long term. When waking up in his bed a few days later, his mother enters his bedroom and tells him to keep lying there for a moment.

She warns Jack about the supposed damages of self-satisfaction, though never actually mentioning the word. One day Jack, wearing big filthy gardening gloves, slowly ap- proaches the visibly annoyed Julie to stretch out his paws and throw her onto her bed, tickling her until she urinates on her- self.

Full of shame and shocked he stumbles out of the room.

Starting about that time, their mother is supposedly getting weaker. The children are visibly growing more independent every day. Little time later, their mother almost never leaves her bed any- more and her bedroom somehow becomes a replacement for the liv- ing room.

On a sunny day, Julie is lying outside, sunbathing. At her request Jack rubs sun lotion on her, which arouses him. One day, having been beaten up in school, he claims that he is fed up with being a boy.

Jack seems confused by that statement. The next day, their mother calls Jack to her room and hints at her worsening illness. Three days later she is dead.

Julie, who has found her, tells Jack the shocking news, but he does not want to believe her.

Jack, disturbed, shocked and close to cry- ing, demands from Julie to see the body, but she refuses. The other family members do not cope well with her death either. In the middle of the night Julie and Jack put it into a trunk and seal it with concrete. The following weeks they live on bread, cheese, fruit and choco- late.

Jack does not attend school and spends each morning and afternoon masturbating, wondering what is wrong with him. Sue and Jack seem scep- tical about him, but Derek can soon persuade Jack to play a round of pool with him. When Derek and his friends start joking about him and his family though, he feels sick and demands to leave.

Life and works of the author Ian McEwan was born on June 21st, in Aldershot, England as the son of a soldier, which affected his young years causing him to spend a number of years in Singapore and Libya as a child. Upstairs, aware of his impatience, I worked on my- self rapidly. He was a frail, irascible, obsessive man with yellowish hands and face.

There were narrow flagstone paths which made elaborate curves to visit flower beds that were only a few feet away. My father confirmed this one evening.
