Read from August 20 to 23, 2012

Swimming Home is a very compact little book. At just over 100 pages, Deborah Levy explores a number of different themes - violence, old age, infidelity, mental illness, and social hierarchies to name a few - but the book felt unfinished and the ideas incomplete. Perhaps if the novel were a little longer Levy could have further developed and polished the characters, but the book ends just as you're beginning to settle into the characters and understand their motivations. That being said, the prose has consistent moments of poignancy and dark humor.
