 Cement Garden
Dealing with such ‘controversial’ subjects as incest, immorality, death, and cross dressing, “The Cement Garden” tries embarrassingly to be scandalous and on the edge of belief while revealing the corruption of a family who have lost all grip on rationality.
Yet the shocking behavior is all dealt with in a casual manner, almost as if the characters honestly do not understand that what they are doing is wrong, and as if the filmmakers want the viewers to be enraptured in their relaxed existential take on life.
They seal up mother’s body in cement and proceed to take over the parental role to their younger siblings, one of whom yearns to be a girl despite his being a boy.

The first mention of “rocailleur”, the profession of making garden furniture and structures in concrete made to resemble wood - “faux-bois” (meaning fake wood) — was in 1845 in Paris.
It was largely used in the Buttes Chaumont gardens (1866 to 1869), and by 1860 to 1870 became a popular type of décor in many public and private gardens: rock formations (in the Bois de Boulogne), terraces, foot bridges, fax trees and tree stumps, guard rails, fences, benches and tables, etc…

 Caterina.net: The Cement Garden by Ian McEwan
There was something about The Cement Garden that was similar to another book I'd read recently, The Confusions of Young Torless.
In both books there is a group of four children living in isolation from both their parents and from the rest of society, acting out the compulsions of adolescent sexuality and the perversity of children.
A film was made of The Cement Garden which was apparently quite good and faithful to the text -- though eliminating the final paragraph in which (SPOILER WARNING) sirens are heard in the distance, the standard filmic expression of order and rationality prevailing over crime and evil.

 English Literature: Shadows on the mind - urban alienation and the mental landscape in Ian McEwan's novel The Cement ...
In this essay I shall be examining the socio-cultural context of The Cement Garden by Ian McEwan (1948 -).
The crumbling garden, and the air of urban degeneration gives the atmosphere of a post-modern hotchpotch of weeds, wasteland, modern high rise flats and dilapidated, dated prefabs - a squalid but diverse if sketchily drawn environment.
In conclusion, The Cement Garden takes four children who are possibly no different to other children and puts their individual and developmental features under close scrutiny so that they appear to be magnified and distorted even before the death of the father which starts the action and reactions of the plot.

If you can't find a sifter with holes large enough to let the cement through but small enough to sift those little rocks you might just have to make your own cement.
No sense in sifting through when you can get a bag of cement mix that doesn't have all the huge chunks in it.

 Review of The Cement Garden   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
And just what is buried under the crumbling pile of cement in the basement?
This book has been mistakenly marketed as a horror novel; it's horrific, sure, but not as horrible as the pulp that defines the genre.
Beyond being a macabre morality tale, The Cement Garden is a psychological-suspense yarn, a perceptive portrayal of adolescence that will keep you riveted up to the final, climactic scene in an upstairs bedroom.
