Over a season, Boga and the old man work side by side on the sandbanks of the Parana, cutting reeds to sell to basketweavers. But when the old man dies, Boga abandons himself entirely to the river and the life of solitary drifting he has long yearned for. Echoes of John Berger sound throughout the evocative prose of this great Argentinian writer.
