Description
(Shortlisted for the 2012 Man Booker Prize, and one of the New York Times Book Review's 100 Notable Books of 2012) As he arrives with his family at a villa in the hills above Nice, Joe Jacobs finds a body floating in the swimming pool—but the naked young woman is very much alive. A self-proclaimed botanist, with green-painted fingernails, Kitty Finch walks out of the water and into the heart of the Jacobs' holiday. Why is she there, and what does she want from them—particularly, from Joe? And why does Joe's enigmatic wife Isabel allow her to remain? Deborah Levy's subversively brilliant study of love reveals how the most devastating secrets are the ones we keep from ourselves.

"Allusive, elliptical and disturbing.... Often funny and always acute ... Swimming Home reminded me of Virginia Woolf's Mrs. Dalloway. Although a short work, it has an epic quality. This is a prizewinner."—Independent (London)
