The River Without a Shore

Juan José Saer

ESSAY, 1991. SEIX BARRAL NEW EDITION, 2006. 256 PAGES.

In El río sin orillas (The River Without a Shore), history and culture, the past and present come together in Saer's tight, vigorous writing, which organizes events into a specific order that is not reportage, treatise or autobiography, but seems closer to his artistic tastes and inclinations: a hybrid that fits no one genre; a new addition to a rich tradition of these texts in Argentine literature.

The central character in this book is the Río de la Plata and its neighbouring provinces. Everything it has to say -taken from books, oral references and personal experiences- has essentially occurred according to the rules we have at our disposal to determine whether an event has truly happened.
