Disenchanted by the life in which she's found herself, Ingrid Coleman writes letters to her husband, Gil, about the truth of their passionate and troubled marriage. She hides them, unread, in the thousands of books Gil has collected over the years. Then she disappears from a Dorset beach, leaving behind her dilapidated house by the sea, her husband, and her two young daughters, Flora and Nan. Twelve years later, Gil thinks he sees Ingrid from a bookshop window, but he's getting older and his unlikely sighting is chalked up to senility. Flora, who has never believed Ingrid drowned, returns home to care for her father and investigate her mother's disappearance. But what Flora doesn't realize is that the answers to her questions are hidden in the books that surround her. Scandalous and smart, Swimming Lessons holds the Coleman family up to the light, exposing the mysterious truths of a turbulent marriage and the dangerous fault lines that remain.

The debut collection of poetry from Lili Reinhart, the actress and outspoken advocate for mental health awareness and body positivity. Swimming Lessons is the first collection of poetry from one of the most beloved young actresses working today. It follows the euphoric beginnings of young love, battling anxiety and depression in the face of fame, and coming to terms with the end of a romance. Through it all, Lili's trademark honesty, optimism, and unique perspective are evident in her first poetry collection. Relatable yet deeply intimate, provocative yet comforting, bite-sized yet profound, these beautiful poems are about growing up, falling down, and getting back up again. They capture what it feels like to be a young woman in today's image-obsessed world, and how to follow your heart even when the odds are stacked against you. Accompanied by striking and evocative illustrations, the poems in Swimming Lessons reveal the depths of female experience, and are the work of a storyteller who is coming into her own. anied by striking and evocative illustrations, the poems in Swimming Lessons reveal the depths of female experience, and are the work of a storyteller who is coming into her own.

This short-story collection by well-known poet, author, and playwright Kobus Moolman is a volume of originality with much to recommend it. Written across a range of creative styles, voices, contexts and genres, each singular story holds its place with slice-of-life impact, drawn with the keenly observed detail and insight that has come to characterize Moolman's work. A major strength of this collection is its precisely noted and rendered detail. Whatever the themes-whether the dilemmas of being differently abled; trapped in lower-income constraints; or born female in an abusively gendered world-they are relayed with authenticity. There is a strongly visceral component to the stories, with the body and its various vulnerabilities, captivities, and seductions featuring in many of them. Some pieces broaden out, both creatively and topically, to explore less obvious facets of staying afloat. Some are strongly experiential, others venturing into the fantastical world of the macabre or surreal. All relay with convincing certitude the human strivings of the trapped lives or trapped hearts they represent. The Swimming Lesson and Other Stories is a collection that stands out for its consummate crafting; its frank, often uncomfortable treatment of taboo topics; its creative risk-taking; and its skilful recreation of worlds gone by, which yet leave their aftershocks. Author Kobus Moolman has published widely and has won numerous awards, including the 2015 Glenna Luschei Prize for African Poetry and the Ingrid Jonker award. In 2013 he was the Mellon Writer in Residence for three months at Rhodes University. [Subject: Fiction, Creative Writing, Literature]

Dear Parent Congratulations! Your child is ready to learn to swim. As a professional swim instructor, I can assure you it will be one of the most exciting adventures in his or her young life. Not only will your child learn practical swim skills, he or she will also develop a genuine love of the water, as well as a real respect for both its joys and potential dangers. This book's purpose is to be a companion to formal lessons. It is meant to help you and your child prepare for those lessons in several ways: . To dissolve some of the mystery involved in learning to how to swim . To outline the sequence of skills as they may be introduced, thereby enabling you to best aid your child in coping with any questions or concerns that may arise as new skills are introduced. . To allow you to be involved in your child's process from the beginning It was my intent to write a simple, fun and engaging story that parents and their children will want to read over and over again. During the many years I have been teaching children to swim, I have witnessed many amazing and magical experiences. Some of my more memorable and positive recollections involved children who came to me with strong fears and resistance to learning to swim. These children taught me to be more patient, flexible, adaptable, and creative, and they have inspired me to write this book. Happy Safe Swimming!!
