Caught by the River

Words on Water: Paperback Edition

26th March 2012

“A wonderful word-map of Britain’s waterways: funny, surprising, passionate and tender. Irvine Welsh on the Black River, Roger Deakin on fen-skating, and Jarvis Cocker on an inflatable dinghy in the River Porter; winter sunsets, rainbows, glistening silver-side salmon, burnt-out cars, sunken shopping trolleys – this is a brilliant book about how rivers run through our modern lives and modern landscapes.” Robert Macfarlane, spring 2012

We’re really chuffed to announce that we’re self-publishing a new paperback edition of Words on Water, our collection of essays on British rivers. Featuring a beautiful brand new cover painting by James Lewis, a rejigged design inside and a new introduction by Charles Rangeley-Wilson, it’s available from the Caught by the River shop for £12.00 (plus P&P).
