Swimming Lessons Press Reviews

'Claire Fuller has captured love in its fullest form, nursed on betrayal and regret and guilt ... Swimming Lessons is so smoothly, beautifully written, and the human failures here are heartbreaking.' David Vann

'Bewitching and page-turning ... an extraordinarily smart and satisfying read.' Paula McLain, author of The Paris Wife

'Extraordinary...From the opening sentence it is gripping...Fuller writes with a singing simplicity that finds beauty amid the terror...might well have you crying out for more.' Sunday Times on Our Endless Numbered Days

'Bewitching...a rivetingly dark tale...spellbinding.' Sunday Express on Our Endless Numbered Days

'Fuller handles the tension masterfully in this grown-up thriller of a fairytale, full of clues, questions and intrigue.' The Times on Our Endless Numbered Days
