Atonement (2007) "The story can resume. I will return. Find you, love you, marry you and live without shame."
IAN MCEWAN: Atonement - '...How can a novelist achieve atonement, when with her absolute power of deciding outcomes, she is also God? There is no one, no entity or higher form, that she can appeal to or be reconciled with; or can forgive her. There is nothing outside of her.'
“The cost of oblivious daydreaming was always this moment of return, the realignment with what had been before and now seemed a little worse. ” ― Ian McEwan, Atonement
