              The Swimmers

              By Torrens, Katherine

              "The Swimmers is the story of a young gay runaway, Celie. From hotels, makeshift camps, and squats, she writes her dead grandmother letters, in which she describes the failure of her first tenuous gay relationship and her confusion of swimming and dying, which she thinks are the ...same. She is convinced that her grandmother is not dead but swimming out at sea. Her story parallels that of her lost Uncle Jack who disappeared abruptly, while putting out milk bottles twenty five years earlier. He was rejected by his mother for admitting a homosexual relationship with partner Michael. The historical backdrop for this novel is the intense media debate surrounding the Homosexual Law Reform bill and the genuine crisis posed by the Aids epidemic"--Publisher information.
