F.T Book Review - Graham Swift " Wish You Were Here". The story of two brothers' relationship - their family name inscribed on the local war memorial - as one runs away from the family run farm to war and is killed while the other tries to cope with the decline of their rural heritage with sickening clouds of smoke from burning cows during the BSE crisis drifting over the landscape bringing the images of war home to Middle England.
