Four men once close to Jack Dodds, a London butcher, meet to carry out his peculiar last wish: to have his ashes scatterd into the sea. For reasons best konw to herself, Jack's widow, Amy, declines to join them. On the surface the tale of a simple if increasingly bizarre day's outing, Last Orders is Graham Swift's most poignant exploration of the complexity and courage of ordinary lives.
