Book: Graham Swift «Ever After»

Ever After

"A subtle book that lingers in the mind... Here is a writer of very considerable power" . Daily Telegraph An academic sits alone in his college room thinking about the people he has lost. Powerful memories crowd in on him -- childhood days in Paris; his exuberant, glamorous mother; his mysterious father; and the brash young American who becomes his step-father. Mingled with this emerges a tender portrait of his relationship with his actress wife. Ever After is a poignant elegy to lost faith and lost hope. It is also a powerful affirmation of love. "Touching and beguiling... Graham Swift has written a deeply felt and rather haunting novel" . Anita Brookner, "Spectator" "Swift is set apart by his acute observation and thrilling exactness of description... Exceptional" . The Times "A remarkable feat" . Evening Standard "Graham Swift has performed a literary tour de force in this novel" . Literary Review

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.
