Swimming Home (Paperback)

Deborah Levy


Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize for Fiction 2012, Swimming Home is a profound and thrilling novel that reveals that the most devastating secrets are the ones we keep from ourselves. When Joe and his wife arrive at his family villa in Nice, they find themselves confronted by a naked girl swimming in the pool. Self-proclaimed botanist Kitty Finch proceeds to step out of the water and right into the heart of their holiday. Who is she and what does she want from Joe? A subversive page-turner that touches on the insidious harm that depression which lurks beneath can have on well-to-do people who seem perfectly stable on the surface.
