About the book
The River tells the story of a newly visible stream running through a city. The insistence of the body of water becomes of extreme fascination to the narrator, who lives suspended between restlessness and routine. As the river grows, filling lakes, ponds, and cracking parking lots, both scientists and community wonder at the current’s arrival. In turn, the narrator asks no questions at all. She reverts to hypotheses and desire, her attention absorbed by the river.
