Iain Galbraith, who has also translated Sebald, gives “River”, and all its “lumber of cumbersome jetsam”, a special English poetry of grunge and grime.
-The Economist

Synopsis

A woman moves to a London suburb near the River Lea, without knowing quite why or for how long. Over a series of long, solitary walks she reminisces about the rivers she has encountered during her life, from the Rhine, her childhood river, to the Saint Lawrence, and a stream in Tel-Aviv. Filled with poignancy and poetic observation, River cements Esther Kinsky as a leading European prose stylist.
