Christopher Lintner, the man behind Swim Lessons, makes you feel like you're either in the middle of a long, night walk, or you're in the need of a good, long, night walk. The fog will roll with us. He takes us out into the silent summer nights, where chilliness is all relative, where the critters are getting braver by the hour, hunting out those watermelon rinds for some of the left behind red parts or those thrown away corn cobs, hoping there were some eaters who put themselves in hurries. The rest can be filled in, as the night air bogs into the lungs via the inviting nose.
