Description

Four men once close to Jack Dodds, a London butcher, meet to carry out his peculiar last wish: to have his ashes scattered into the sea.

For reasons best known to herself, Jack's widow, Amy, declines to join them.

On the surface the tale of a simple if increasingly bizarre day's outing, Last Orders is Graham Swift's most poignant exploration of the complexity and courage of ordinary lives. `Last Orders confirms his reputation as one of the great contemporary chroniclers of landscape and memory' Observer `His finest book to date; emotionally charged and technically superb' Times Literary Supplement `Inspired . . . His finest novel yet' Guardian `A triumph' Sunday Times `Tragic, comic and wonderfully compassionate' Daily Mail
