To the River : A Journey Beneath the Surface, Paperback

To the River : A Journey Beneath the Surface Paperback



To the River is the story of the Ouse, the Sussex river in which Virginia Woolf drowned in 1941.

One idyllic, midsummer week over sixty years later, Olivia Laing walked Woolf's river from source to sea.

The result is a passionate investigation into how history resides in a landscape - and how ghosts never quite leave the places they love.
