Ian McEwan
(1948-) He is a British novelist and screenwriter. He spent much of his childhood in East Asia, Germany and North Africa. His family returned to England when he was 12. In 2002, McEwan discovered that he had a brother who had been given up for adoption during World War II; the story became public in 2007. The brothers are in regular contact, and McEwan has written a foreword to Sharp's memoir. In 2008, The Times named him among their list of "The 50 greatest British writers since 1945". He won the Man Booker Prize in 1998. He was nominated for the Booker Prize another 5 times. McEwan also received nominations for the Man Booker International Prize in 2005 and 2007. In 2006 he was accused of plagiarism; specifically that a passage in Atonement (2001) closely echoed a passage from a memoir, No Time for Romance, published in 1977 by Lucilla Andrews.
