The Cement Garden archive"I did not kill my father, but sometimes I felt I had helped him on his way. And but for the fact that it coincided with a landmark in my own physical growth, his death seemed insignificant compared with what followed. I am only including the little story of his death to explain how my sisters and I came to have such a large quantity of cement at our disposal." In the relentless summer heat, four children retreat into an isolated world left to them by their parents, and attempt to create their own version of a family. In Ian McEwan's first novel, The Cement Garden explores coming of age, burgeoning sexuality and the distortions of a 14-year-old mind. Duration: 90mins. Recommended 15+. Adult themes and content.
