This review is from: Swimming Home (Paperback)
Deborah Levy's "Swimming Home" manages to be both a riveting read and a profound comment on the human condition. Beautifully and tightly written, it takes the old convention of the British family "abroad" (renting an French villa for the summer)and turns it into an examination of madness, despair, art, and love. Witty at moments, deeply moving at others, this short novel will linger in your memory.
