From the Publisher:

A moving exploration of conflict, loss and love
From the brilliantly rejacketed backlist of Graham Swift, winner of the 1996 Booker Prize. A moving exploration of the conflict, loss and small miracles of love affecting a group of people and different generations changed by personal and world wars. "One of his generation's finest, with an imagination of rare immediacy and vitality" The Times; "A born storyteller" Daily Telegraph

Book Description:

In 1972 Robert Beech, First World War survivor and present-day armaments maker, is killed by a car bomb. The event breaks the career of his son Harry, a news photographer, and comes close to destroying his granddaughter Sophie. Ten years later, the Falklands War has begun and both Harry, now working as an aerial photographer, and Sophie, visiting an analyst in New York, are haunted by a past that has scarred and divided them. 'It appeals to the emotions, the intellect and the imagination, and its elegance is as durable as Greek art ... a novel fro those who still believe in the importance of fiction, indeed of art' Scotsman
