Leah Swann’s first fiction publication comprises a novella and seven short stories, all dealing with themes relating to the book’s title, Bearings. Each short story provides a familiar plot in which Swann’s characters search for meaning and direction: a young boy deciding which parent to live with; an old woman reflecting on a hard life; and two forty-somethings looking for love, to name a few.
