FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE BESTSELLING MOTHERING SUNDAY AND LAST ORDERS , and reissued for the first time on the Scribner list, this is an intensely moving novel about a night that will change one family beyond recognition.

On a June night Paula , a successful art dealer, lies awake, Mike , her husband of twenty-five years, asleep beside her. In nearby rooms their twin teenage children, Nick and Kate , sleep too. The next day, Paula knows, will define all their lives.

As dawn approaches, Paula recalls the years before and after her children were born. Her story is both a celebration of love possessed and a moving acknowledgement of the fear of loss, of the fragilities on which even our most inward sense of who we are can rest.

Graham Swift's apparently most domestic book is that rare thing in fiction, a novel about happiness, though a happiness that is not all that it seems. An intimate and tender tale of a marriage, a family and a home, it begins to embrace big themes: nature and nurture, the illusory and the real.

Praise for Mothering Sunday:
'Bathed in light; and even when tragedy strikes, it blazes irresistibly... Swift's small fiction feels like a masterpiece' Guardian
'Alive with sensuousness and sensuality ... wonderfully accomplished, it is an achievement' Sunday Times
'From start to finish Swift's is a novel of stylish brilliance and quiet narrative verve. The archly modulated, precise prose (a hybrid of Henry Green and Kazuo Ishiguro) is a glory to read. Now 66, Swift is a writer at the very top of his game' Evening Standard
' 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
