The Shallow End by Ashley Sievwright – the classic text on sex, suntanning and celebrity – is now re-released in a new paperback and hardback edition.
It was one of the most perfect days, only just warm enough, an ever so slight breeze I could see in the hairs on my arms and in the flutter of flags across each end of the pool but couldn’t feel. It must have been the exact temeperature of my blood.
On a cloudless afternoon a man dives into a crowded swimming pool and disappears. Is it murder, a staged disappearance, or alien abduction?
Available now online as paperback, hardback, and ebook. Buy from Hares & Hyenas bookshop.
