Description

From the Booker-winning author of Last Orders and Waterland comes a long-awaited new novel – ‘Mothering Sunday is bathed in light; and even when tragedy strikes, it blazes irresistibly…Swift’s small fiction feels like a masterpiece’ Guardian It is March 30th 1924. It is Mothering Sunday. How will Jane Fairchild, orphan and housemaid, occupy her time when she has no mother to visit? How, shaped by the events of this never to be forgotten day, will her future unfold? Beginning with an intimate assignation and opening to embrace decades, Mothering Sunday has at its heart both the story of a life and the life that stories can magically contain. Constantly surprising, joyously sensual and deeply moving, it is Graham Swift at his thrilling best. ‘Mothering Sunday is a powerful, philosophical and exquisitely observed novel about the lives we lead, and the parallel lives – the parallel stories – we can never know …It may just be Swift’s best novel yet’ Observer
