Esther Kinsky

Translated from the German by Iain Galbraith

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.

PRAISE FOR RIVER

River is an unusual and stealthy sort of book, by turns grubby, theatrical, and exquisite.”—Claire-Louise Bennett

“The woman who has fled her own hinterland for the ragged fringe of London discovers a dreamlike city of melancholy magic.”—The Economist

“Esther Kinsky’s unnamed narrator observes and remembers, piling up beautiful, silt-like layers of description and memory until it becomes difficult to know which is which . . . This is a book to relish.”—The Guardian
