A fishing trip marks the end of Jerra and Sean's friendship, although once, when they were younger and more innocent, it would have seemed unbelievable that the bond between them - first forged by their fathers, and later sealed with their blood - could ever be broken. But growing up has meant growing apart, the differences between them widening, sharpening their teasing words into something crueller and less easy to forgive.

At once a haunting and a powerful exploration of the horrors and joys of adulthood, An Open Swimmer is also a meditation on past and present, a story of madness and murder, and of the punishing yet redemptive qualities of both fire and water.
