A novel of love in the world of vaudeville, from the Booker Prize-winning author of Last Orders and Mothering Sunday.

It is 1959, in Brighton, England, and the theater at the end of the famous 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 full houses every night. And Jack is everyone's favorite master of ceremonies, holding the whole show together. But as the summer progresses, the offstage drama among the three begins to overshadow their success onstage. Intimately alive, tenderly comic, and quietly shattering, Here We Are is a masterly work of literary magicianship from a true master.

GRAHAM SWIFT was born in 1949 and is the author of eleven novels, two collections of short stories, and Making an Elephant, a book of essays, portraits, poetry, and reflections on his life in writing. With Waterland he won the Guardian Fiction Award and with Last Orders the Booker Prize. Both novels have since been made into films. His work has appeared in more than thirty languages.
