The Light of Day

Graham Swift

‘Deserves to be inhaled greedily in a single sitting’ Independent on Sunday

On a cold but dazzling November morning, George prepares to visit Sarah, a prisoner and the woman he loves. As he goes about the business of the day he relives the catastrophic events of exactly two years ago that have both bound them together and kept them apart.

Told in George’s plain words but growing deeper with each revelation, The Light of Day is a hauntingly tense yet tender story about discovering the hidden forces inside all of us and the power of such discovery to change everything.
