This book has now arrived and I am reading, and loving it. It is the story of his almost daily swims at the ponds on Hampstead Heath. It is also the story of his battle with the process of aging. It makes me want to do more outdoor swimming. I do swim in the lake in Sweden every day in the summer when we are there but I need to find somewhere here to swim outdoors, and not in a pool. As Alvarez says
‘Its good for the soul as well as the body and its cheaper than psychoanalyisis.’
sounds an interesting read, I’ll check it out, thanks Jane 🙂
Hi Sally. I loved it.
