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.
