Forlagets beskrivelse
Nature writer and environmentalist Roger Deakin sought to rediscover Britain by swimming through its bodies of water in his highly acclaimed 1996 book Waterlog: A Swimmer?s Journey Through Britain. Twenty years after this feat of athleticism, conservationism, and meditation, journalist Joe Minihane pays homage to Deakin by reenacting his wild swimming tour, experiencing the waters as Roger did, writing about and photographing them, exploring how they have changed and how attitudes to outdoor swimming have shifted since Waterlog?s publication.Unexpectedly, Minihane?s initial project of following in Deakin?s tracks also became a way for him to admit, and then work through, his struggles with almost crippling anxiety. He chronicles this journey?both physical and introspective?in his debut memoir Floating. Originated from a period of darkness, Floating is as intense, moving, and dramatic as it is lyrical and generous, and it captures in beautiful detail Minihane?s struggle to not merely emulate his predecessor, but make this impressive venture uniquely his own. Far more than the account of a great feat?rediscovering Britain?s secret places by swimming its waters?Floating is a story of rediscovering oneself, and finding healing, love and friendship along the way.
