Last Orders Overview

Last Orders by Graham Swift was originally published in 1996, and won the Booker Prize of that year. The author is a London native born in 1949, with a number of other award-winning novels to his name. Through alternating points of view, Last Orders tells the story of four British men on a journey to the seaside at Margate. The purpose of their trip is to fulfill the final wishes of Jack Dodds, to have his ashes scattered into the ocean. The complex relationships shared by all of the characters are slowly revealed in memories and flashbacks, all while the present action draws the novel to its inevitable conclusion.
