His work has embraced everything from incest and murder to terrorism and climate change. In Machines Like Me, his latest book, McEwan’s particular interest in science conjures an alt-history world in which Britain lost the Falklands War, Turing was pardoned, and the subsequent breakthroughs in artificial intelligence have produced ‘manufactured humans’.
