Waterstones Says

From night fishing for eels to hymning the tropical waterfalls of Trinidad, this unfailingly engaging and erudite collection from a dozen of our finest writers celebrates the majesty and complexity of rivers.

'What is a river?', asks Amy-Jane Beer, in the opening essay of this collection, which blends nature writing and memoir from some of the most exciting writers of today.

Twelve writers consider the subject of rivers and how they shape us throughout our lives, demarcating cities as well as moulding our creative consciousness. Tessa Hadley revisits Rumer Godden’s The River; Jo Hamya pays homage to Virginia Woolf; Michael Malay goes nightfishing for eels by the river Severn; and Marchelle Farrell revisits the tropical waterfalls of her childhood home in Trinidad.

Tender and astute, By the River explores the cultural, social and psychological significance of the rivers that run through our societies and our minds, bringing together these twelve contemporary writers in a celebration of water and its transformative qualities.
