Nominated for the PEN/Hemingway award, Water Dancer is now available for the first time in ebook format. Water Dancer tells the story of Dorey Thomas, a marathon swimmer training to cross the cold, brutal waters of the San Antonio Strait. It is a feat no other athlete has ever achieved. This swim will be her return to life after suffering a nervous breakdown. Her trainer, Sarge Olssen, faces an old enemy; for the San Antonio Strait took the life of his only son. Since then he and his wife, Ilana, have lived in isolation, torn from the world and from each other. Dorey's year of training brings the passions of these three to the surface, becoming not only a test of physical endurance for Dorey but a test of the spirit for them all: a road to healing and redemption, and a rebirth of the ability to love. Swirling at the core of this mythical journey is water itself, the mysterious element of sustenance, destruction, transformation. "Water Dancer is a hard, rewarding book; about much more than swimming. This is a book I want my sons and daughters to read. The love felt and described is inspiring. It transcends the physical, sensual, sexual to the spiritual, the psychic. It touches on the essential quality of love, and takes us into depths and through currents almost unendurable, to new insights, new beaches." - William Wharton, author of Birdy "A Sargasso Sea of brilliant and startling images...Levin's prose dazzles." - Los Angeles Herald Examiner "An extraordinary first novel." - The Village Voice
