With exquisite prose, Ian McEwan creates in "On Chesil Beach" a story of lives transformed by a missed gesture or an unspoken word, exploring the devastating effects a lack of action can have on two lives. McEwan's nickname still seems appropriate, not for the death of characters, but for the death of what could have been.
