Publisher's Summary

Night Swim, the gripping debut novel from Jessica Keener, was heralded as the “arrival of a strong, distinct and fully evolved new voice” by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jennifer Egan. In 1970s Boston, the glossy veneer of 16-year-old Sarah Kunitz’s wealthy family is starting to show cracks. Her parents’ constant fighting and her mother’s prescription pill abuse drive Sarah into two romantic relationships with unforeseen consequences. With grief fresh in her heart, Sarah wonders if she or her family will ever love again.

Most eloquent language. Intelligent and empathetic.

Completely engrossed during the entire story. From the music of the word to the music of the story. More please.
