Ever After

by Graham Swift

Ever After Synopsis

`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
