The first review of Graham Swift's Wish You Were Here

31 May 2011

The first review of Graham Swift's novel Wish You Were Here has just arrived... and it's wonderful!!

‘Serious rural novels such as this one remind us of Thomas Hardy. But Hardy seemed to relish his characters' suffering. Swift might make his endure, or fail to endure, the most awful things - but in the end, the very end of this extraordinary novel, thank goodness, he treats them with compassion.’ This is London
