To the River: A Journey Beneath the Surface

by Olivia Laing - £9.99  Canongate Books Ltd (Canongate Canons) (2017)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781786891587 | ISBN 10: 1786891581

An odyssey along the banks of the River Ouse, from source to sea; a profound and haunting reflection on history and landscape by one of the most important writers of modern non-fiction.
 
Over sixty years after Virginia Woolf drowned in the River Ouse, Olivia Laing set out one midsummer morning to walk its banks, from source to sea. Along the way, she explores the roles that rivers play in human lives, tracing their intricate flow through literature, mythology and folklore.
 
Lyrical and stirring, To the River is a passionate investigation into how history resides in a landscape - and how ghosts never quite leave the places they love.
