Summary

This chapter explores the depiction of science and climate crisis in The Child in Time and Solar, with particular emphasis on the relationship between science and art. It shows how the novels depict art and science in conversation, resisting resolution in favour of one or the other. Central to this depiction is the relationship between science and gender in The Child in Time and the much critiqued representation of climate crisis science in Solar. The chapter reads the two novels in relation to each other and places them in the larger framework of McEwan’s interviews and writings on science, art and climate crisis.
