On an autumn day in 2006, on the Isle of Wight, Jack Luxton, former Devon farmer and now the proprietor of a seaside caravan park, receives the news that his soldier brother Tom, not seen for years, has been killed in Iraq.


For Jack and his wife Ellie this will have a potentially catastrophic impact. For Jack in particular it means a crucial journey―to receive his brother’s remains, but also into his own most secret, troubling memories and into the land of his and Ellie’s past.


Wish You Were Here is both a gripping account of things that touch and test our human core and a resonant novel about a changing England. Rich with a sense of the intimate and the local, it is also, inescapably, about a wider, afflicted world. Moving towards an almost unbearably tense climax, it allows us to feel the stuff of headlines―the return of a dead soldier from a foreign war―as heart-wrenching personal truth.
