The Chronology of WaterThe Chronology of Water by Lidia Yuknavitch

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


This is a stunningly written memoir of a woman who survives a horrible childhood, escapes through her love and skill of swimming, only to lose her swimming scholarship in a haze of drugs and sex. Water and swimming become a powerful metaphor for her life. It may sound depressing, and it had plenty of potential to become a melodramatic Lifetime movie, but she comes to terms with who she is and finds an outlet. Very highly recommended.
