Synopsis:

Four men gather in a London pub. They have taken it upon themselves to carry out the last orders of Jack Dodds, master butcher, and deliver his ashes to the sea. As they drive towards the fulfillment of their mission, their errand becomes an extraordinary journey into their collective and individual pasts. Braiding these mens voices, and that of Jack's widow, into a choir of sorrow and resentment, passion and regret, Swift creates a testament to a changing England and to enduring mortality. "Swift has involved us in real, lived lives...Quietly, but with conviction, he seeks to affirm the values of decency, loyalty, love."--New York Review of Books
"A beautiful book...a novel that speaks profoundly of human need and tenderness. Even the most cynical will be warmed by it."--San Francisco Chronicle


Review:

"...the novel is not just about frustration, or the small ways the characters have failed their wives, each other, and themselves. It is also, strongly but unsentimentally, about the power of hope and friendship, and the strength of shared memories. Swift's most remarkable gift is his ability to make the reader share them too."

Caroline Moore, Spectator, 01/27/1996

Review:

"[Graham Swift's] work slices through the ephemeral and the trivial to the core of our concerns with death, family, nature and history."

Scott Rosenberg, Salon
