Cecilia Tallis’s necklace

“Atonement” by Ian McEwan

November/December 2015

“Her first resort was a black crêpe de Chine dress which, according to the dressing table mirror, bestowed by means of clever cutting a certain severity of form. Its air of invulnerability was heightened by the darkness of her eyes. Rather than offset the effect with a string of pearls, she reached in a moment’s inspiration for a necklace of pure jet.”
