Reviews

  • Thrilling, transporting, delicately realised and held together by a sophisticated sense of suspense . . . more than matches the power of Fuller's debut . . . Powerful , pleasing and pleasurable.

    Sunday Times
  • A compelling portrait of a complicated, unconventional marriage, and of flawed humanity, with all its secrets, silences and deceits. Excellent.

    Mail on Sunday
  • It's the sharp eye for detail, sometimes bizarre, that makes her writing stand out . . . A story suffused with the poignancy of miscommunication between people who love each other, of the things we can never really know.

    Guardian
  • 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
  • With Swimming Lessons, Fuller confirms herself as a writer of emotional depth, technical skill and sensitive plotting . . . What Fuller evokes beautifully are the complicated dynamics between fathers and daughters, sisters, lovers, friends

    Observer
  • A deeply moving read, with a mystery that keeps you turning pages

    Oprah.com
  • Evocative, immersive

    Sarah Vaughan, author of Anatomy of a Scandal
  • 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.
