Product Details


“A profound, intricately stratified novel full of life, love lost and love enduring.” — The Globe and Mail

“Swift is surely one of England’s finest living novelists…. The tale he tells is as affecting as it is convincing…. Quietly, but with conviction, he seeks to reaffirm the values of decency, loyalty, love.” — The New York Review of Books


Man Booker Prize WINNER 1996

IMPAC Dublin Literary Award FINALIST 1998
