In a post to Instagram, Vanessa shared a photo of the book’s cover. For her caption, the mother of four explained that Kobe’s posthumous novel is one of her favorites. “‘Whether goose or swan, I have wings and I’ll fly.’ Introducing ‘Geese Are Never Swans,’ one of my favorite novels created by my husband @kobebryant. Readers will meet his newest character Gus Bennett, an aspiring Olympic swimmer facing tough issues that he must overcome in order to win in the pool. This story perfectly highlights the healing nature that lies within sports,” she wrote.
Throughout his career, Kobe has released several books including “The Mamba Mentality: How I Play,” “Legacy and the Queen” and “The Wizenard Series.”
Back in January 2020, Kobe and his daughter Gianna were among the nine victims that were killed in a tragic helicopter crash in California. Following their untimely deaths, Vanessa has been keeping their memories alive with heartfelt posts on social media and more.
Earlier this month, Vanessa gave fans a peek at an unopened letter from the late Lakers star on her 38th birthday. “Yesterday, I found an envelope labeled to: The Love of my Life. From, Tu Papi,” she wrote. “I waited to open one more letter on my birthday. It gave me something to look forward to today. The irony is that Kobe had a photo of me drawn with an Angel holding me up by an artist on the cover. Missing the Love of my Life and my sweet little Mamacita- my fellow Taurus. Grateful to wake up to my 3 sweet girls today. Wish we were all together. #MyBirthdayWish.”
