Amsterdam (1998)
By Ian McEwan


Amsterdam, a tale of morality in contemporary Britain, centers on two successful men, Vernon Halliday, a newspaper editor, and Clive Linley, a composer. Both men had loved the same woman, Molly Lane, who died of a degenerative illness. After attending her funeral, the two men make a pact to euthanize the other if he ever suffers from such a disease. However, the pact falls apart when the two men become enemies and seek revenge on each other.

Fun Fact: In the novel, Amsterdam is where Clive must premiere his composition commissioned by the Millennium Symphony.

Next: Disgrace (1999)
By J. M. Coetzee
