Книга: Graham Swift «Waterland»


In the years since its first publication, in 1983, WATCRLAND has established itself as one of the classics of twentieth-century British literature: a visionary tale of England's Fen country; a sinuous meditation on the workings of history; and a family story startling in its detail and universal in its reach.

Graham Swift

Graham Colin Swift (born May 4, 1949) is a well-known British author. He was born in London, England and educated at Dulwich College, London, Queens' College, Cambridge, and later the University of York.

Some of his works have been made into films, including "Last Orders", which starred Michael Caine and Bob Hoskins and "Waterland" which starred Jeremy Irons. "Last Orders" was a joint winner of the 1996 James Tait Black Memorial Prize for fiction and a mildly controversial winner of the Booker Prize in 1996, owing to the superficial similarities in plot to William Faulkner's "As I Lay Dying". "Waterland" was set in The Fens; it is a novel of landscape, history and family, and is often cited as one of the outstanding post-war British novels and has been a set text on the English Literature syllabus in British schools.
