Leaving by Plane Swimming Back Underwater



Derek Walcott, the Nobel prize-winning poet, has said of Leaving by Plane Swimming back Underwater: "A really accomplished writer, Lawrence Scott's last book is a delight.' And novelist Romesh Gunesekera says: "Marvellous voices that grow into a very special world that Lawrence Scott has made his own. These are stories full of charm and surprise.' Scott explores a world of yearnings and memory, of departure and return, underpinned by the disturbing tensions created by religion, race, sexuality and crime. Sensuous and evocative, Scott's prose has a lightness of touch and tone that exhilarates and illuminates. In the midst of everyday lives, he finds the extraordinary in the ordinary.
