This is an auction for LAST ORDERS by Graham Swift.

From Wikipedia:

"LAST ORDERS is a 1996 Booker Prize-winning novel by British author Graham Swift. In 2001 it was adapted for the film LAST ORDERS by Australian writer and director Fred Schepisi. The movie generally reflects the novel accurately without any major deviations. The story makes much use of flashbacks to tell the convoluted story of the relationships between a group of war veterans who live in the same corner of London, the backbone of the story being the journey of the group to Margate to scatter the ashes of Jack Dodds into the sea, in accord with his last wishes. The title LAST ORDERS not only refers to these instructions as stipulated in Jack Dodd's will, but also alludes to the 'last orders (of the day)' - the last round of drinks to be ordered before a pub closes, as drinking was a favourite pastime of Jack and the other characters. The plot and style are influenced by William Faulkner's As I Lay Dying . . . "
