  • Last Orders

    Last Orders
    While driving the ashes of a dead friend from London to the seaside town where they are to be scattered, long-time pals, men whose lives revolve around work, family, the racetrack, and a favorite pub, reexamine their lives, choices, and personal relationships.

    The Light of Day

    The Light of Day
    A Novel
    On the anniversary of a life-shattering event, George Webb, a former policeman turned private detective, revisits the catastrophes of his past and reaffirms the extraordinary direction of his future. Two years before, an assignment to follow a strayed husband and his mistress appeared simple enough, but this routine job left George a transformed man. Suspenseful, moving, and hailed by critics as a detective story unlike any other, The Light of Day is a gripping tale of murder and redemption, as well as a bold exploration of love and self-discovery. This powerful novel signals yet another groundbreaking achievement from Graham Swift, the author of the Booker Prize-winning novel Last Orders. From the Trade Paperback edition.

    Wish You Were Here

    Wish You Were Here
    Learning that his long-absent brother has been killed in combat in Iraq, Jack Luxton, a proprietor of a seaside caravan park, shares a poignant journey with his wife to reclaim his brother's remains and confront painful memories. By the Booker Prize-winning author of Last Orders. Read by John Lee. Simultaneous.

    Making an Elephant

    Making an Elephant
    In his first-ever work of nonfiction, Graham Swift—Booker Prize-winning author of Waterland and Last Orders—gives us a highly personal book: a singular and open-spirited account of a writer’s life.   Here Kazuo Ishiguro advises on how to choose a guitar; Salman Rushdie arrives for Christmas under guard; Caryl Phillips shares a beer with the author at a nightclub in Toronto. There are private moments with Swift’s father and with his own younger self, as well as musings—on history, memory, and imagination—that illuminate his work. As generous in its scope as it is acute in its observations, Making an Elephant brings together a richly varied selection of essays, portraits, poetry and interviews, full of insights into Swift’s passions and motivations, and wise about the friends, family and other writers who have mattered to him over the years. From the Trade Paperback edition.
