Booklist Description (PUT BLURBS FOR BOOKLISTS HERE): 

This stylish memoir by artist and author Leanne Shapton recounts the author’s youth spent in intense training for a spot on Canada’s Olympic swim team and the important role that swimming has played in her adult life. Shapton poetically describes the meditative, repetitious, and often painful nature of competitive athletics and draws interesting parallels to her professional practice as an artist.
