News of the Swimmer Reaches Shore: A Guide to French Usage
Publisher:Victoria University Press
A travel book, an autobiographical novel, and a free-floating meditation on Europe and the Antipodes, this personal memoir begins with its narrator suspended in the salty, tideless waters of the Mediterranean. Adrift on an ocean of art history, literature and music, memories and a dream-like present, modernism, the politics of French nuclear testing, swimming, drowning, and underwater explosions are twined together with the life of a family in an innovative and engaging exploration.
