Floating is a remarkable memoir about a love of swimming and a deep appreciation for the British countryside: it captures Joe Minihane’s struggle to understand himself, and the healing properties of wild stretches of water.

From Hampstead to Yorkshire, Dorset to Jura, the Isles of Scilly to Wales, Minihane follows the example of Roger Deakin’s Waterlog (reviewed by Sarah Anderson in SF Issue 6) to trace his own path. Along the way, he rekindles old friendships and forges new ones, and after an unexpected setback discovers that he has already gained enough strength to continue his recovery on dry land. Both strange and beautiful, the wild water puts him in touch with nature and himself.

‘Lovely, lively, passionate . . . a celebration of nature’s ability to inspire healing and joy’ Robert Macfarlane
