Over sixty years after Virginia Woolf drowned in the River Ouse, Olivia Laing sets out to walk its banks, from the source all the way to the sea. As she walks, she reflects upon the power of rivers, refracting mythology, science, social history and literature through their waters to shed light on their eternal violence and mystery. Lyrical and stirring, To the River is a meditation on landscape and its capacity to restore hope - and how ghosts never really leave the places they love.
