"A moving, ingenious and often very funny tale that takes us deep into his characters' wounded, resilient hearts with breathtaking virtuosity...rich, complicated, joyful, arresting." —USA Today

Graham Swift's Out of This World interweaves the history of a blighted family with the tragic and ludicrous history of the twentieth century. It's alternating narrators are a father and daughter—each obsessed with the other and irrevocably estranged—surveying their losses and grievances on opposite sides of the Atlantic. Their voices are unforgettable, their hurts terribly moving, and their vision of our era, like Swift's itself, shocking and terribly persuasive.

"Graham Swift is a writer of extraordinary power." —San Francisco Chronicle

"A brilliantly imagined, tautly written novel.... Through arresting, snapshot-like glimpses of father and daughter...we gradually sense the heart-tug of love triumphing over years of alienation.... Like Waterland, it deftly explores large themes." —New York Newsday
