His novel, Enduring Love , about the relationship between a science writer and a stalker, was popular with critics, although it was not shortlisted for the Booker Prize. In , he won the Man Booker Prize for Amsterdam.

In , McEwan was accused of plagiarism; specifically that a passage in Atonement closely echoed a passage from a memoir, No Time for Romance, published in by Lucilla Andrews. McEwan acknowledged using the book as a source for his work. The incident recalled critical controversy over his debut novel The Cement Garden , key elements of the plot of which closely mirrored some of those of Our Mother's House , a novel by British author Julian Gloag , which had also been made into a film.
McEwan denied charges of plagiarism, claiming he was unaware of the earlier work. The novel includes "a scientist who hopes to save the planet"  from the threat of climate change, with inspiration for the novel coming from a Cape Farewell expedition McEwan made in in which "artists and scientists McEwan noted "The novel's protagonist Michael Beard has been awarded a Nobel prize for his pioneering work on physics, and has discovered that winning the coveted prize has interfered with his work".

McEwan commented that his novel Atonement started out as a science fiction story set "two or three centuries in the future. He was quoted as saying that fundamentalist Islam wanted to create a society that he "abhorred". His comments appeared in the Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera , to defend fellow writer Martin Amis against allegations of racism. McEwan, an atheist ,  said that certain streams of Christianity were "equally absurd" and that he didn't "like these medieval visions of the world according to which God is coming to save the faithful and to damn the others.
Contrary to reports, my remarks were not about Islam, but about Islamism — perhaps 'extremism' would be a better term. I grew up in a Muslim country — Libya — and have only warm memories of a dignified, tolerant and hospitable Islamic culture.
I was referring in my interview to a tiny minority who preach violent jihad , who incite hatred and violence against 'infidels', apostates , Jews and homosexuals; who in their speeches and on their websites speak passionately against free thought, pluralism , democracy, unveiled women ; who will tolerate no other interpretation of Islam but their own and have vilified Sufism and other strands of Islam as apostasy ; who have murdered, among others, fellow Muslims by the thousands in the market places of Iraq, Algeria and in the Sudan.
Countless Islamic writers, journalists and religious authorities have expressed their disgust at this extremist violence.
To speak against such things is hardly 'astonishing' on my part Independent on Sunday or original, nor is it ' Islamophobic ' and 'right wing' as one official of the Muslim Council of Britain insists, and nor is it to endorse the failures and brutalities of US foreign policy. It is merely to invoke a common humanity which I hope would be shared by all religions as well as all non-believers.
