Book Description: Washington Square Press, 1985. paperback. ‘New York. 1985. Washington Square Press. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Slightly Worn Wrappers. 219 pages. paperback. 0671546120. keywords: Literature England. inventory # 22803. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Under the city streets Prentis works as a senior clerk in a police department where are stored the archives of ‘dead crimes’ – undisclosed complicities and uninvestigated evils. His investigations are supervised by the enigmatic Mr Quinn who, for reasons of security, distrust – and spite? – never makes clear the purpose of this task. Events take a sinister turn when Quinn directs his inquiries towards Prentis’s own affairs, and – Prentis feels – to those of his father, a wartime hero now confined to a mental home. Unsettled, Prentis gradually suspects that his father’s breakdown is somehow connected with Quinn’s menacing behavior and that the link is to be found in SHUTTLECOCK. For SHUTTLECOCK is the true story of his father’s wartime exploits. Prentis has lived under it spell – and shadow – all his life. But his belief in his father’s heroism is now undermined by the discovery of cracks in the story, small discrepancies that have odd parallels with a series of coded files that have mysteriously disappeared. He is sure that Quinn has taken them, but why? Does Quinn have something to hide? Or could it be that his father is not the man everyone thought he was and that Prentis is not the son he thought himself to be. Through the complex character of Prentis, Graham Swift builds up an intense psychological thriller - an unnerving study of power and inadequacy and the manipulative aspects of family and work life. Graham Colin Swift FRSL (born 4 May 1949) is a English writer. Born in London, England, he was educated at Dulwich College, London, Queens' College, Cambridge, and later the University of York. Some of Swift's books have been filmed, including Last Orders, starring Michael Caine and Bob Hoskins and Waterland, starring Jeremy Irons. Last Orders was joint-winner of the 1996 James Tait Black Memorial Prize for fiction and a mildly controversial winner of the 1996 Booker Prize, owing to the superficial similarities in plot to William Faulkner's As I Lay Dying. Waterland is set in The Fens; a novel of landscape, history and family, it is often cited as one of the outstanding post-war British novels and has been a set text on the English literature syllabus in British schools. Writer Patrick McGrath asked Swift about the ‘feeling for magic’ in Waterland during an interview. Swift responds that ‘The phrase everybody comes up with is magic realism, which I think has now become a little tired. But on the other hand there’s no doubt that English writers of my generation have been very much influenced by writers from outside who in one way or another have got this magical, surreal quality, such as Borges, Márquez, Grass, and that that has been stimulating. I think in general it’s been a good thing. Because we are, as ever, terribly parochial, self-absorbed and isolated, culturally, in this country. It’s about time we began to absorb things from outside.’ Swift was acquainted with Ted Hughes and has himself published poetry of note, some of which is included in Making an Elephant: Writing from Within (2009).’ Very Good In Slightly Worn Wrappers.
