Writers at York

GRAHAM SWIFT reads from his new novel, Mothering Sunday, and discusses his fiction with HUGH HAUGHTON (Department of English and Related Literature).

Graham Swift is the author of ten novels, two collections of short stories and Making an Elephant, a collection of non-fiction reflecting his life in writing. With Waterland he won the Guardian Fiction Prize and with Last Orders the Booker Prize.

His much-praised new novel, Mothering Sunday, A Romance, begins with a secret lovers’ assignation in the spring of 1924 then unfolds to reveal the whole of a remarkable life.  “Alive with sensuousness and sensuality…wonderfully accomplished” (Sunday Times).  “Blazes irresistibly…a masterpiece” (Guardian)

The event will be followed by a book signing and drinks reception. Copies of Mothering Sunday and other novels will be available from Waterstone’s at the venue.
