The description of this book led me to believe I d be reading about a pair of girls growing up in an Italian tenement figuring out their way as adolescents wishing to rise above their current situation and I thought it would be politically charged to boot It seemed like a recipe for a great read So why do I walk away feeling disappointed and a little disgusting I wasn t expecting to read page after page about the sexual exploits of two 13 year old girls one with a 23 year old The book tried so hard to be edgy through its sex abuse death and scandals but the execution was greatly lacking It was far disturbing than thought provoking Many of the events simply occur without rhyme or reason and I m left feeling like there is no redemption just a book trying to expose the life of the Italian working class poor and yet falling far short My Father's Daughter year old girls one with a 23 Secret Diary of a Grumpy Old Woman year old The book tried so hard to be edgy through its sex abuse death and scandals but the execution was greatly lacking It was far disturbing than thought provoking Many of the events simply occur without rhyme or reason and I m left feeling like there is no redemption just a book trying to expose the life of the Italian working class poor and Grumpy Old Women yet falling far short

See my full review here is one of my greatest pleasures if time allowed I d be in the pool or taking a dip in the sea everyday I ve read some memorable swimming stories most recently Swimming Studies by Leanne Shapton and Swimming Home by Deborah Levy however unfortunately the latest Swimming to Elba by Silvia Avallone and translated by Antony Shugaar was not one that made me reach for the cossieIt s the story of best friends Anna and blonde Francesca They re 13 years old live in an impoverished seaside Italian town where unemployment drug use physical abuse and criminal activity is rife The story begins at the height of summer Anna and Francesca are just learning that their adolescent bodies wield a particular power over the boys and men in the town They ran freely through the crowd turning to look at one another joining hands as they ran They knew that nature was on their side they knew they were powerful Because in certain settings certain places all that matters is whether a girl is pretty And if you re not if you re a loser you go nowhere you have no fun If the boys don t write your name on the pillars in the courtyardthen you re nobody You re thirteen years old but you already wish you were dead Despite this the girls spend most of their time playing like they did as children and dreaming of swimming to Elba a wealthy resort town across the bay In the distance two and a half miles across the water the white beaches of the Isle of Elba gleamed like an unattainable paradise The inviolate domain of the Milanese the Germans the silky skinned tourists in black SUVs and sunglasses But for the teenagers who lived in the huge barracks of public housing for the children of all the nobodies dripping with sweat and blood at the steel mill the beach across the way from their front doors was already paradise The only real paradise A handful of other characters take the story in various directions Francesca s brutal father who regularly physically abuses both his daughter and wife Anna s playboy brother Lisa the girl who wishes she was part of the in crowd and Matteo the man who seduces AnnaI am wondering if the rawness of Avallone s words were lost in translation Unfortunately I found the story disjointed occasionally repetitive and jumped forwards and backwards in an inconsistent way Further the constantly changing narrator in some cases from paragraph to paragraph was distractingI did like the sense of place that the author created Set in the seaside town of Piombinao Italy the scenes describing the beach the rundown apartment buildings the steel mill and the town were good I could smell the rotting seaweed see the mangy stray cats and feel the gritty air at the mill the ruins of a smokestack Farther on an abandoned industrial shed In the middle an excavator with a twisted arm and an upside down bucket Dead and seething with heat She loved the feel of that sea bottom rough and soft at the same timeunderwater where the noises of the world became a placenta where the salt burns your corneas where the only sound you can hear is your own breathing no longer yours There s probably a lot to be explored in this book about mother daughter relationships friendships between girls and women and being on the cusp of adolescence However while the characters were strong I didn t become invested in their story25 Lost in translation PerhapsI received my copy of Swimming to Elba from the publisher Penguin via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
