The Last Wave

By (author) Gillian Best

A beautifully rendered family drama set in England between the 1950s and the present, following the life of Martha, a woman who has swum the English Channel ten times, and the complex relationships she has with her husband, her children and her close friends.Debut author, Best, a native of Toronto, presents a wholly authentic tragicomic portrait of family life as it is buffeted by illness, intolerance, anger, failure and regret. A mature, accomplished and compelling new voice; a novel soaked in empathy and salt water.
