The Swimming Pool

14 pages13 minutes


“The first time I saw Catherine I wanted to strip her naked and caress every inch of her skin. She inspired intense erotic fantasies that I tried to suppress but couldn't.”

So begins this story of one woman’s secret passion for another. This is intense, heartfelt erotica from one of England’s most exciting contemporary writers.

There are no clumsy fumbles below the waterline here. Vanessa Wu writes about real people and real passions. This is sensuality for grown-ups, steeped in emotion and infused with tenderness.

Her stories appeal to discerning readers who are looking for something deeper than raw descriptions of sex. The Swimming Pool, with its poignant evocation of an irrecoverable past, is one of her very best.
