      The other, 's Booker prize-winning Last Orders, he has called a "tribute" to Kent. While the mood of his writing about London is often celebratory – the first story in the new book. By the time they reach the seaside town where Jack's "last orders" have sent them, the tangled relationship among the men, their wives and their children has obliquely been revealed. Swift's lean, suspenseful and ultimately quite moving narrative is propelled by vernacular dialogue and elliptical internal monologues.
