Ebook description:

The ponds of Hampstead Heath are small oases; fragments of untamed nature nestled within the coronary heart of north-west London. For the perfect a part of his life Al Alvarez – poet, critic, novelist, rock-climber and poker participant – has swum in them nearly each day. An athlete in his youth, Alvarez, now in his eighties, chronicles what it’s to develop outdated with humour and fierce honesty – from his relentlessly nagging ankle which makes each day life a battle, to infuriating bureaucratic battles with the council to maintain his disabled individual’s Blue Badge, the devastating results of a stroke, and the salvation he finds within the three Ss – Swimming, Intercourse and Sleep. As Alvarez swims within the ponds he considers the way it feels if you start to overlook that individual you was – to overlook your self. Swimming is his personal personal type of protest towards the onslaught of time; proof to others, and himself, that he isn’t but crushed. By turns humorous, poetic and indignant, Pondlife is a meditation on love, the significance of life’s small pleasures and, above all, a lesson in not going gently in to that good night time
