"It began with a dart, a pint, and a poem, three elements that seemed to demonstrate the imprecise nature of fate. When Fred stepped up to the line, the dart held loosely in his hand, you could see in the way he carried his body the assurances of a man who was well prepared." p. 3 - The Night Swimmer by Matt Bondurant
From Amazon: The poignant unraveling of a marriage, the fierce beauty of the natural world, the mysterious power of Irish lore, and the gripping story of strangers in a strange land rife with intrigue and violence—The Night Swimmer is a novel of myriad enchantments by a writer of extraordinary talent.
Recently, I had the opportunity to hear author Matt Bondurant read from his recent novel, The Night Swimmer. I'm looking forward to diving into this interesting story, as well as his previous works like The Wettest County In The World, a novel that's been made into a movie and will release this summer.
