From the debris of her troubled early life, Lidia Yuknavitch weaves an astonishing tale of survival.
A kind of memoir that is also a paean to the pursuit of beauty, self-expression, desire - for men and women - and the exhilaration of swimming, The Chronology of Water lays a life bare. It is a life that navigates, and transcends, abuse, addiction, self-destruction and the crushing loss of a stillborn child.
It is the life of a misfit, one that forges a fierce and untrodden path to creativity and comes together in the shape of love.
