In brilliant, spare prose and beautifully conceived characters whose seemingly quietly ordinary lives contain multitudes, Here We Are is magical. During the summer of 1959, in a vaudeville show on the pier in Brighton, England, the intertwined lives of three performers – Jack Robbins, the show’s master of ceremonies, Ronnie Deane, magician extraordinaire, and his assistant Evie White – are related in flashbacks and flashforwards. In 200 pages, author Graham Swift shows us life’s mysteries, its rewards and its tragedies.
One meeting: Monday, June 28, from 8:00-8:45 p.m. Registration required.
Here We Are is available in print, hoopla e-book and e-audiobook and OverDrive/Libby e-book and e-audiobook.
