Swimmingis a central part of most Australian childhoods. We idealise beaches and surf,but for many kids the local pool – whether it's an ocean, tidal or achlorinated pool – is where they pass summer days. Pools are places ofimagination, daring, belonging, freedom, friendship and romance. For some theyare places of hard-core swimming training. This delightful, nostalgic anthologybrings together reflections and recollections about the swimming pools ofchildhood from a range of Australians of diverse ages and backgrounds, wellknown and not-so-famous — including Trent Dalton, Leah Purcell, Shane Gould, Bryan Brown and Merrick Watts.
