The Swimmers by Julie Otsuka

Julie Otsuka writes like no other author. Her words are melodic and mesmerizing. This exquisite, tender novel begins as a love letter to a group of swimmers, bound together by ritual. A mysterious crack appears in the pool they share, and their sanctuary is undone. The story then pivots to one of the swimmers, Alice, and the heartbreaking path of her dementia. This is a powerful, intimate, portrait of loss that touches deep inside. —Trey
