First edition first print hardback of MACHINES LIKE ME by Ian McEwan and published by Jonathan Cape in 2019. Signed by McEwan on the title page. Full numberline 1 3 5 7 9 10 8 6 4 2.

The book is in as new condition (blue cloth boards with silver lettering to spine). The book is in a fine unclipped dust jacket which is protected in an archival sleeve. Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears or other inscriptions.

Britain has lost the Falklands war, Margaret Thatcher battles Tony Benn for power and Alan Turing achieves a breakthrough in artificial intelligence. In a world not quite like this one, two lovers will be tested beyond their understanding.

'Machines Like Me' occurs in an alternative 1980s London. Charlie, drifting through life and dodging full-time employment, is in love with Miranda, a bright student who lives with a terrible secret. When Charlie comes into money, he buys Adam, one of the first batch of synthetic humans. With Miranda’s assistance, he co-designs Adam’s personality.

This near-perfect human is beautiful, strong and clever – a love triangle soon forms. These three beings will confront a profound moral dilemma.

Ian McEwan’s subversive and entertaining new novel poses fundamental questions: what makes us human? Our outward deeds or our inner lives? Could a machine understand the human heart? This provocative and thrilling tale warns of the power to invent things beyond our control.
