Swim Back to Me: Stories  BUY NOW 

 

 

From the best-selling author of Songs Without Words and The Dive from Clausen’s Pier, her strongest work yet—a collection of burnished, impossible-to-put down narratives framed by two stunning, linked novellas.

A wife struggles to make sense of her husband’s sudden disappearance. A mother mourns her teenage son through the music collection he left behind. A woman shepherds her estranged parents through her brother’s wedding and reflects on the year her family collapsed. A young man comes to grips with the joy—and vulnerability—of impending fatherhood. And, in the masterly opening novella, two teenagers from very different families—one a tightly knit foursome, the other a father and son who share little more than having been abandoned by the same woman—forge a sustaining friendship, only to discover the disruptive and unsettling power of sex.
