The stories told in this book are set in three rivers in northern Europe. In Aisne, in France, a man fights a battle against the elements and against himself; In Germany, through the Rodach, the Main and the Rhine, two rafter pursue a dream that lies too far away; in a remote valley of Brittany, a stream has confronted two families for centuries. These rivers, silent witnesses or involuntary agents of the happiness or misfortune of people, are a symbol of life, of civilization and openness to new horizons, but also symbolise the violence that nature entails. Sailing alongside this rivers, Martin Michael Driessen - one of the most outstanding contemporary Dutch authors - has managed to build three timeless stories which function as a parable about the virtues and weaknesses inherent in the human soul.

Martin Michael Driessen is a writer, translator, and theater and opera director. He debuted with the novel Gars and is also the author of Ríos, and De pelikaan. His work has been critically acclaimed, translated into various languages and has been awarded several literary prizes.
