Книга: Graham Swift «Tomorrow»


"This is Graham Swift at his impressive best" . Times Literary Supplement On a midsummer's night, Paula lies awake, Mike, her husband of twenty-five years, asleep beside her, her two teenage children, Nick and Kate, sleeping in nearby rooms. The next day, she knows, will define all their lives. As morning approaches, Paula recalls the years before and after her children were born. Her story is both a celebration of love possessed and a moving acknowledgment of the fear of loss, the fragilities, illusions and secrets on which even our most intimate sense of who we are can rest. "Paula talks the way that people actually talk... this is part of Swift's overwhelming honesty as a writer: he writes the way that life goes" . Anne Enright, "Guardian" "The rhythms of long-term partnership become the rhymes of the narrative itself ... a subtle picture emerges of how coupledom is deepened by parenthood" . Robert MacFarlane, "Sunday Times" ...

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.
