Booker Long List 2012: “Swimming Home”

August 29, 2012 at 1:34 pm | Posted in Fiction | Leave a comment

This is the first book I have read off the Man Booker long list for 2012.  It is my prediction that Deborah Levy’s Swimming Home will make it to the short list.

Product Details

Spare, poetic, powerful, Swimming Home is an electric read.  It’s a little creepy and entirely believable.  At under 160 pages, it’s an easy choice if you want a taste of the Bookers.

 

Next up: Necropolis by Jeet Thayil.
