Praise for Mothering Sunday:
Bathed in light; and even when tragedy strikes, it blazes irresistibly Swift's small fiction feels like a masterpiece' Guardian
';Alive with sensuousness and sensuality wonderfully accomplished, it is an achievement' Sunday Times
';From start to finish Swift's 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 Swift's best novel yet' Observer
