How does love change us? And how do we change ourselves for love – or for lack of it? Ten stories by acclaimed author Deborah Levy explore these delicate, impossible questions. From glossy ad-land to swans with a sinister sleeping sickness, from London gardens to a forest outside Prague, these are twenty-first century lives dissected with razor-sharp humour and curiosity, about what it means to live and love, together and alone.

Praise for Swimming Home
‘Deborah Levy has made something strange and new.’ John Self, Guardian
‘Deborah Levy’s storytelling is allusive, elliptical and disturbing. Her touch is gentle, often funny and always acute.’ Julia Pascal, Independent
