Book of the Week. Bodies of water both separate and connect us, and when we enter them we have a different relationship to the world from the one we have on dry land. The essays in Nina Mingya Powles's Small Bodies of Water are connected by her experiences of the bodies of water that have been meaningful to her, from learning to swim in Borneo, to the New Zealand coast, to a pond in northwest London. 
>>"I float, I strain, I swim."
>>The Safe Zone. 
>>Braver in water than on land
>>Periods, nature writing and colonialism
>>A pond of likenesses
>>NMP on RNZ.
