About this book
Paperback edition of Laing's book which looks at the story of the Ouse, the Sussex river in which Virginia Woolf drowned in 1941. More than 60 years later Laing takes a walk along it from source to sea, and investigates how history resides in a landscape. 'Arrestingly beautiful...' Juliette Nicholson, "Evening Standard"
'A gentle, wise and riddling book. Its prose, like the river it describes, flows intricately, unpredictably and often beautifully, carrying the fascinated reader onwards' Robert McFarlane
