In an exquisite and moving account, Tim Jeal explores the life of his eccentric father. Swimming with My Father is a tender portrait of childhood, of growing up, and of a father who was a uniquely English eccentric. From his own embarrassing schoolboy meeting with the elderly T. S. Eliot to his father's strange religious beliefs, and from his father's childlike wonder at the beauties of the natural world to his later struggle with Parkinson's, it is a lovingly composed and wholly honest exploration of the past.
