Publisher's Summary

From the debris of her troubled early life, Lidia Yuknavitch weaves an astonishing tale of survival. A kind of memoir that is also a peon to the pursuit of beauty, self-expression, desire - for men and women - and the exhilaration of swimming, The Chronology of Water lays a life bare.

It is a life that navigates and transcends abuse, addiction, self-destruction and the crushing loss of a stillborn child. It is the life of a misfit, one that forges a fierce and untrodden path to creativity and comes together in the shape of love.

Honest and beautiful

it is a hard story to listen to as Lidia describes the experiences she had which are forever etched on her body and the pain and suffering that comes with that. AND the beauty, compassion and love that can come along as well. this story is so well written.

What’s with the echo?

I honestly got about 15 seconds into this and had to stop. It sounds like it’s being read in a cellar there’s that much echo. That’s one credit wasted.
