Ian McEwan's upcoming novel Nutshell is a departure from anything he has written in the past. Scheduled to be published in September this year, it tells the story from the point of view of a child in the womb with two weeks to go before it is born.

The publishers have said it is a classic tale of love and deceit. The new blurb has just been released.

"Trudy has betrayed her husband, John. She's still in the marital home – a dilapidated, priceless London townhouse – but John's not here. Instead, she's with his brother, the profoundly banal Claude, and the two of them have a plan. But there is a witness to their plot: the inquisitive, nine-month-old resident of Trudy's womb."

McEwan's previous books include Atonement, On Chesil Beach and The Children Act.

You can pre-order the book in Australia here and in the UK here.
