NPR Interview with Lynne about Swimming in the Sink

“Lynne Cox writes about swimming the way Saint-Exupery wrote about flying, and one sees how swimming like flying can stretch the wings of the spirit. Lynne is an extraordinary achiever, but it is her enthusiasm and warmth, along with her respect for others, that come through above all in her writing, which is as easy and natural as her natural swimming ability. Swimming to Antarctica is thrilling, modest, vivid and lyrical, an inspiring account of a life of aspiration and adventure.”
