Dan Waterman’s got a problem: a big, big problem. The happily married, award-winning screenwriter and former competitive swimming champion wakes up one day lost and alone in the middle of the ocean.

A pod of sympathetic dolphins volunteers to help, and so begins a unique, compelling, unforgettable journey of self-discovery. Man’s eternal quest for happiness and true love, the fine line between dreams and reality, the nature of truth versus fiction ― Forward Swim, a fantasy adventure novel for adults, is about a great many things. But most of all, it’s about choosing to push toward the future instead of becoming incapacitated by the past.

    Must read!! Great for book club!!

    This is a beautifully written story about a man who one day finds he has become a dolphin out in the middle of the ocean. He wants desperately to find his way back to his wife, and his former life, even though his marriage and career haven't quite lived up to his dreams. Along the way he rediscovers the meaning of love in his life.
