A quietly, devastating, magical novel Daily Telegraph''Beautiful, gentle, intricate... Here We Are smuggles within the pages of a seemingly commonplace tale depths of emotion and narrative complexity that take the breath away.'' The Observer It is Brighton, 1959, and the theatre at the end of the pier is having its best summer season in years. Ronnie, a brilliant young magician, and Evie, his dazzling assistant, are top of the bill, drawing audiences each night. Meanwhile, Jack Jack Robinson, as in before you can say is everyones favourite compère, a born entertainer, holding the whole show together. As the summer progresses, the off-stage drama between the three begins to overshadow their theatrical success, and events unfold which will have lasting consequences for all their futures. Rich, comic, alive and subtly devastating, Here We Are is a masterly piece of literary magicianship which pulls back the curtain on the human condition.With a wizardry of his own, Swift conjures up an about-to-disappear little world and turns it into something of wider resonance Sunday Times Theres nothing extravagant or showy about Here We Are . . . The books power comes precisely from the fact that it performs its magic in front of your eyes, leaving nowhere to hide . . . you wonder how he does it. Financial TimesAs with all his books, its the moments of quiet, undramatic poignancy that stay with you Sunday Express ''He tells simple, truthful stories about what feel like real people. Here We Are is a welcome addition to a proud legacy.'' The Big Issue The variety of voices and its historical and emotional reach are so finely entwined, it is as perfect and smooth as an egg. Passages leap out all the time, demanding to be reread, or committed to memory... It is perhaps too simple to say that Swift creates a form of fictional magic, but what he can do with a page is out of the ordinary, far beyond most mortals ken.'' Rosemary Goring, The Herald''Here We Are is a subtle portrait of a vanished world, with moving passages about the problems of wartime evacuees returning to impoverished London life after the wonders of the countryside.'' The Independent In Here We Are, Swift does not just dwell on the pivotal moments of our lives, but traces their shockwaves both forward and back. Moving seamlessly from pre-war to post, from the events of one illusory, youthful summer to the present, we are given candid access to the innermost reflections of three people who loved and betrayed each other. The end result is the stuff of life, an enduring mystery that Ronnie, Evie, Jack - that we all - must live with. I thought it was wonderful. Joseph Knox, author of SirensPraise for Mothering Sunday: ''Bathed in light; and even when tragedy strikes, it blazes irresistibly Swifts small fiction feels like a masterpiece Guardian Alive with sensuousness and sensuality wonderfully accomplished, it is an achievement Sunday Times From start to finish Swifts is a novel of stylish brilliance and quiet narrative verve. The archly modulated, precise prose (a hybrid of Henry Green and Kazuo Ishiguro) is a glory to read. Now 66, Swift is a writer at the very top of his game Evening Standard Mothering Sunday is a powerful, philosophical and exquisitely observed novel about the lives we lead, and the parallel lives the parallel stories we can never know It may just be Swifts best novel yet Observer
Taken from the episodes of the whitewashed fence and the ordeal in the cave to the trial of Injun Joe, this book is redolent of life in the Mississippi River towns. It shows that beneath the innocence of childhood lies the inequities of adult reality - base emotions and superstitions, murder and revenge, and more.

I loved every page'' Lisa Jewell Ruth Wares richly-textured The It Girl is at once an engrossing murder mystery while also a perfectly crafted and haunting examination of lost youth and the compromises of adulthood, as a woman unpicks the past secrets of her university friends to finally lay to rest her murdered best friend, the dazzling April. Reminiscent of The Secret History , Ware has surpassed herself with this gripping, absorbing whodunnit. I loved it! All hail the Queen'' Sarah Pinborough If you ever idly wish that Agatha Christie would write a new book, Ruth Ware has got you covered. The It Girl has all the clues, twists and red herrings you could wish for, in a thoroughly modern setting. An impeccably constructed mystery from start to finish'' Jane Casey ''Its brilliant. Ruth is the master of the fiendishly twisty, yet completely believable, plot'' Elly Griffiths ''Just finished The It Girl by Ruth Ware and now my life is divided in two: before and after.

The book I wish Id written? Whatever Hari Kunzru is publishing next Aravind Adiga Astonishing, absorbing, terrifying. Immensely good. Philip Pullman '' Red Pill stands as a final blast of sanity against this new, deranged reality. It is a literary masterpiece for a barbaric new world rapidly running out of room for literary masterpieces. The Spectator ''[A] deeply intelligent and artfully constructed novel.'' Financial Times From the author of White Tears comes a breathtaking, state-of-the-world novel about one mans struggle to defend his values and create a reality free from the shadows of the past. From now on when you see something, youre seeing it because I want you to see it. When you think of something, itll be because I want you to think about it And with those words, the obsession begins. A writer has left his family in Brooklyn for a three month residency at the Deuter Centre in Berlin, hoping for undisturbed days devoted to artistic absorption. When nothing goes according to plan, he finds himself holed up in his room watching Blue Lives, a violent cop show with a bleak and merciless worldview. One night at a party he meets Anton, the charismatic creator of the show, and strikes up a conversation. It is a conversation that leads him on a journey into the heart of moral darkness. A conversation thatthreatens to destroy everything he holds most dear, including his own mind. Red Pill is a novel about the alt-right, online culture, creativity, sanity and history. It tells the story of the 21st century through the prism of the centuries that preceded it, showing how the darkest chapters of our past haunt our present. More than anything, though, this is a novel about love and how it can endure in a world where everything else seems to have lost all meaning. Praise for White Tears Exquisitely attuned Washington Post Electrifying, subversive and wildly original The New Yorker ''A book that everyone should be reading right now'' TIME Magazine Haunting, doom-drenched, genuinely and viscerally disturbing...
