Have any of you guys read this new book, the Great Swim, by Gavin Mortimer about Gertrude Ederle, the first woman to swim the English Channel (and she was a New Yorker!!)? I read a review of it yesterday on the Entertainment Weekly site and it looks awesome. Gertrude Ederle - is one of my of heroes - and I really want to read it but itís not out in the UK till May. Let me know what you think.
