Published: William Morrow - April 28th, 2020

An exquisite debut from a talented artist, Tomasz Jedrowski has told far more than a story with 'Swimming in the Dark.' Through Ludwik and Janusz, he allows the reader to peel back the deeply personal and too often tragic dimensions of our inner-turmoil, and of the impossible decisions we face through a lifetime.  He artfully guides us through a philisophical and passionate picture of love, rebellion, family, and the meaning of home.  By the time I flipped to the very last page, a single tear finally released itself, at once blurring my vision, and enveloping myself into the life of both anguish and possibility.

Engaging and urgent, 'Talking to Strangers' suggests that perhaps we don't know what we think we know about the people we don't know. This causes us to default-to-fear, and the implications are as far reaching as you can imagine. This is a necessary and timely conversation, and my favorite book of the year!
