An Open Swimmer


Jerra and his best mate Sean set off in a beaten-up old VW to go camping on the coast. Jerra’s friends and family want to know when he will finish university, when he will find a girl. But they don’t understand about Sean’s mother, Jewel, or the bush or the fish with the pearl. They think he needs a job, but what Jerra is searching for is more elusive. Only the sea, and perhaps the old man who lives in a shack beside it, can help. An Open Swimmer is a remarkable first novel by one of Australia’s most loved and respected writers.
