`He gets to the heart of people . . . an extraordinary novel' Evening Standard

Wish You Were Here Summary

Wish You Were Here by Graham Swift

Time Out Novel of the Year

`Astonishingly moving' Sunday Express

On an autumn day in 2006, on the Isle of Wight, Jack Luxton - former Devon farmer, now proprietor of a seaside caravan park - receives the news that his brother Tom, not seen for years, has been killed in Iraq.

For Jack and his wife Ellie this will have a potentially catastrophic impact and compel Jack to make a crucial journey: to receive his brother's remains, but also to return to the land of his past and confront his most secret, troubling memories.

Building to a fiercely suspenseful climax, Wish You Were Here is a hauntingly compassionate story that allows us to feel the stuff of headlines as heart-wrenching personal truth.

`Profound and powerful . . . an unputdownable read' Scotland on Sunday

`A wonderful writer' Daily Telegraph
