The Memory Pool
The Memory Pool
Australian stories of summer, sun and swimming
Swimming is a central part of most Australian childhoods. We idealise beaches and surf, but for many kids the local pool - whether it's an ocean, tidal or a chlorinated pool - is where they pass summer days. Pools are places of imagination, daring, belonging, freedom, friendship and romance. For some they are places of hard-core swimming training. This delightful, nostalgic anthology brings together reflections and recollections about the swimming pools of childhood from a range of Australians of diverse ages and backgrounds, well known and not-so-famous - including Trent Dalton, Leah Purcell, Shane Gould, Bryan Brown and Merrick Watts. Evocative, funny and sometimes bittersweet, almost 30 people remember the pools that shaped their childhoods. Everyone who has ever dived into their local olympic pool, bush waterhole or saltwater baths will want to submerge themselves in this beautiful book.
