A lyrical account of a year’s wild swimming in Britain.
In “Dip,” Andrew Fusek Peters describes an extraordinary year of wild swimming. He leads us to rivers, lakes, waterfalls and hidden pools, into untamed landscapes that have the potential to surprise and move us in unexpected ways. Following in the wake of great writers such as Richard Jefferies and Edward Thomas, “Dip” combines meditations on place, history and myth with sharp observation and a poet’s eye.
As he takes the plunge and immerses himself in the elements, Andrew also begins to surface from a deep depression, making “Dip” at once a personal journey and about the many ways in which wild water and nature can restore us to ourselves.”
