Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Swimming Home by Deborah Levy, read by Sophie Ward. 

A poet, his wife, her daughter and their friends arrive at the French Riviera. The prospect of a long hot summer stretches ahead of them. At their villa, they find a body in the swimming pool. But this body is very much alive. 

It is Kitty Finch: self-proclaimed botanist with lurid green fingernails, avid poetry fan, walking naked out of the water and straight into the centre of their holiday. Why is she there? What does she want from them? And why does the poet's wife invite this beautiful young woman to remain?

amazing first novel

not my favourite Levy, but as I love, love everything else that's not a criticism.
