Product Details

Praise

“Extraordinary.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Once again, Swift has demonstrated wizardry in his ability to conjure magic out of ordinary lives.” —NPR

“A novel fueled by, and consequently alive with, creative brilliance and emotional intensity.” —Minneapolis Star Tribune
 
“A magical piece of writing: the work of a novelist on scintillating form.” —The Guardian

“Beautiful. . . . Neither trick nor illusion, but a flash of truth.” —The Wall Street Journal

“Swift captures the tragicomedy of life.” —The Washington Post
 
“Swift’s closing account of a mundane world momentarily pierced by a shaft of numinous mystery is magnificent.” —The New York Times Book Review
 
“One more brilliant example of [Swift’s] talent for pulling universal themes out of the hats of ordinary lives.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)
 
“Beautiful, gentle, intricate. . . . Here We Are smuggles within the pages of a seemingly commonplace tale depths of emotion and narrative complexity that take the breath away.” —The Observer (London)
 
“There’s nothing extravagant or showy about Here We Are. . . . The book’s power comes precisely from the fact that it performs its magic in front of your eyes, leaving nowhere to hide. . . . You wonder how [Swift] does it.” —Financial Times
 
“A marvellous tale of post-war love and magic.” —The Daily Telegraph
 
“With a wizardry of his own, Swift conjures up an about-to-disappear little world and turns it into something of wider resonance.” —The Sunday Times (London)
 
“It is perhaps too simple to say that Swift creates a form of fictional magic, but what he can do with a page is out of the ordinary, far beyond most mortals’ ken.” —The Herald (Scotland)
