Kerry Andrew: SKIN

Author Kerry Andrew joins me to talk about SKIN, a story of mystery, myths and – of course – swimming.

SKIN follows the journey of eleven-year-old Matty. Joe, father to Matty, has disappeared, and nobody will explain where he’s gone, or why.¬†Kerry captures the joy of outdoor swimming as Matty finds peace in the water, firstly in the Hampstead Ponds, and later in the loughs of Ireland, although it’s not always a harmonious relationship.

In this episode, Kerry describes the novel and the inspiration, as well as a dream swim that’s definitely going on my wishlist!

SKIN is available now in hardback and paperback.
