“An instantaneous basic when first printed in Redbook in 1975, Swimmer within the Secret Sea went on to be included in Prize Tales 1975: The O. Henry Awards after which printed individually as a paperback. We’re proud to revive to print this standard and critically acclaimed novella about Laski and Diane, a sculptor and his spouse, and their wrestle to carry a brand new life into the world, set towards the backdrop of a chilly Maine winter. Writer William Kotzwinkle, well-known for his many enduring kids’s books akin to Hassle in Bugland and his novelization of the film E.T. The Extraterrestrial, is equally adept at writing significantly and poetically about life in extremis. This story of a father-to-be and his painful love for his spouse and stillborn son will stick with readers for a lifetime.”–Writer’s web site.
