Lenka Janiurek first encountered tragedy when she was just nine with the death of her mother. Her rich and remarkable memoir encompasses a chaotic family, early success as a playwright, disastrous relationships, motherhood, brushes with both wealth and poverty, and the comforting solace of swimming. Haunted by the despair, rage and addiction of men she has known best, she nevertheless explores and celebrates the beauty and pain of living life to the full and the restorative power of the natural world.
