Norwich in People's Lives

Ian McEwan: I moved here in 1970, to attend the University of East Anglia for a master's degree. Here, already interested in and pursuing a career as a I writer, I shifted from journalism and scripts to fiction writing. I met a group of young English writers that encouraged and inspired me, including Norman Mailer, John Updike, Henry Mellow, and Saul Bellow. I also met a fellow student, the headstrong and idealistic Penny, whom I fell in love with. Penny was liberated and a complete "free spirit." Upon graduating with my master's degree from East Anglia in 1974, I left the country to spend a year in Afghanistan.
