“The new compendium, Caught by the River: A Collection of Words on Water, knows much about river-wonder… It is beautiful in its simplicity: it doesn’t have a hectoring truth, worthy plan or manifesto. It is, instead, a mix of reminiscences, travelogues and meditations covering fishing, swimming, observing and ice-skating. But its particular contributors also unify it into an immediate classic.”
Sorry to keep chucking reviews of our book at you but we had to pass on this jaw-dropping review from last week’s Independent On Sunday. Also, The Guardian have run an extract from the book on their website today.
