Product description

Review

Thrillingtransportingdelicately realised and held together by a sophisticated sense of suspense . . . more than matches the power of Fuller's debut . . . Powerful , pleasing and pleasurable

Sunday Times

 

compelling portrait of a complicated, unconventional marriage, and of flawed humanity, with all its secrets, silences and deceitsExcellent

Mail on Sunday

 

It's the sharp eye for detail, sometimes bizarre, that makes her writing stand out . . . A story suffused with the poignancy of miscommunication between people who love each other, of the things we can never really know

Guardian

 

Claire Fuller has captured love in its fullest form, nursed on betrayal and regret and guilt . . . Swimming Lessons is so smoothlybeautifully written, and the human failures here are heartbreaking

David Vann

 

Bewitching and page-turning . . . an extraordinarily smart and satisfying read

Paula McLain, author of The Paris Wife

 

With Swimming Lessons, Fuller confirms herself as a writer of emotional depth, technical skill and sensitive plotting . . . What Fuller evokes beautifully are the complicated dynamics between fathers and daughters, sisters, lovers, friends

Observer

 

A deeply moving read, with a mystery that keeps you turning pages

Oprah.com

 

Evocativeimmersive

Sarah Vaughan, author of Anatomy of a Scandal

From the Inside Flap

'Gil Coleman looked down from the window and saw his dead wife standing on the pavement below.'
Gil's wife, Ingrid has been missing, presumed drowned, for twelve years.
A possible sighting brings their children, Nan and Flora, home. Together they begin to confront the mystery of their mother. Is Ingrid dead? Or did she leave? And do the letters hidden within Gil's books hold the answer to the truth behind his marriage, a truth hidden from everyone including his own children? --This text refers to the paperback edition.
