RiversBook - 2018
A critically acclaimed, award-winning collection drawing sparkling prose from the inspiration of three rivers passing through different times and places. On the storm-swollen Aisne in northeastern France, an alcoholic actor combats both his demons and nature's tempests. Along the Main and Rhine in Germany, a kindhearted logger has but one wish: to travel with the lumber from his small Franconian hometown to the end of the river in the Netherlands, where it feeds into the majestic North Sea. In a bucolic vale in the French region of Brittany, two families, divided by religion and an unnamed stream, sustain a centuries-old feud, their resolve no match for the constantly shifting flow of water.
