Call them transcripts of dreams or deadly accurate maps of the tremor zones of the psyche, the three short stories featured in Ian McEwan's In Between the Sheets: A Psycho-Sexual Adventure in Three Scenes engage and implicate us in the most fearful ways imaginable. In Pornography, a two-timing adult magazine-shop worker becomes an unwilling object in the fantasies of his victims. A jaded millionaire buys himself the perfect mistress and plunges into a hell of jealousy and despair in Dead As They Come. Finally, in Psychopolis, a London screenwriter visiting Los Angeles finds himself the only sane man amongst the population of the inhabitants of that psychotic metropolis. Seth Duerr directs.
