Booker’s Prize| LAst Order|Graham Swift

October 12, 2017 - Booker's awarded books, Ebook

The story makes much use of flashbacks to tell the convoluted story of the relationships between a group of war veterans who live in the same corner of London, the backbone of the story being the journey of the group from Bermondesay to Margate  to scatter the ashes of Jack Dodds into the sea, in accord with his last wishes. The title ‘Last Orders’ not only refers to these instructions as stipulated in Jack Dodd’s will, but also alludes to the  ‘Last Orders (of The Day) – the last round of drinks to be ordered before a pub closes, as drinking was a favorite pastime of Jack and the other characters.

The plot and style are influenced by illiam Faulkner’s as I Lay Dyning In June 1996, Swift declared that it was an homeage to Faulkner’s book but there were various differences.
