Here We Are by Graham Swift

Review by Jessica Peterson White

There’s a special place in my heart for perfectly rendered novels under 200 pages, and Here We Are will be added to my list of all-time favorites. It’s an atmospheric love story set in a tourist town on the southern coast of Britain in the summer of 1959, where the players in a sweet-but-heart-wrenching triangle are a magician, his lovely assistant and the impresario who makes them both celebrities for a short but brilliant time. Swift illuminates each character beautifully until his reader adores them all just as their seaside audiences do, and effortlessly weaves their story into an insightful reflection on memory, absence and the mysteries of perception.
