I’ve been waiting for this moment forever. Well, since October… that’s almost forever. Right?

Last October, a bookseller friend recommended that I read Swimming Lessons by Claire Fuller. He was pretty insistent, and he tends to have impeccable reading taste, so I contacted the publisher to request an advance reading copy. The release date was February 7.

The date finally showed up, and I was able to visit with Claire Fuller in England through the magic of Skype. I’m Beth Golay. This is Marginalia. And here’s our conversation about her book Swimming Lessons.


Swimming Lessons is published by Tin House Books.
