Debut novel

You were right when you said that people can't always give us what we want from them.

You were right when you said that people can't always give us what we want from them. Poland, 1980. Anxious, disillusioned Ludwik Glowacki, soon to graduate university, has been sent along with the rest of his class to an agricultural camp. Here he meets Janusz and together, they spend a dreamlike summer swimming in secluded lakes, reading forbidden books – and falling in love. But with summer over, the two are sent back to Warsaw and to the harsh realities of life under the Party. Exiled from paradise, Ludwik and Janusz must decide how they will survive – and in their different choices, find themselves torn apart. Swimming in the Dark is an unforgettable debut about youth, love, loss and the sacrifices we make to live lives with meaning.

'Elegant, compelling and full of melancholy beauty ... I will keep it on my shelves alongside novels by Alan Hollinghurst, Edmund White and other classics in the gay canon.'
Evening Standard

'Marvellous, precise, poignant writing ... The highest talent at work.'
Sebastian Barry
