Ever After

Graham Swift

‘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
