BOOK: The River Flows On – by Ivan Watson (Author) – Paperback

Amazon link:

The River Flows On is a story of two places-Guyana and Brooklyn, US. It sets out the tale of the main character, a young man born into a riverain family with a rich heritage, who is conflicted about his family and the river and delves into his relationships and actions that culminate into a downward spiral.

The struggle to survive in both places and a small part of the unheralded and oftentimes overlooked narrative of many Caribbean immigrants in their quest for a better life in the US are essential to the telling of this story.       

The river is ever present in one way or another in the life of our main character, despite his ambivalence. The promise of his poetic talent and the affection and love from others breathe energy into his characterization.

Finally, the contrasting outcomes for the featured actors in The River Flows On is a study in the vagaries and seeming contradictions of life that are, at times, confusing and incomprehensible. For some, the river is just another body of water flowing to the Atlantic; for others, it represents a vital, living creation of endless virtue to be tapped for all time.

The book is available at Amazon, Amazon Kindle, and Barnes and Noble online, Also, I have a few copies for sale. Anyone interested can call me at 240-274-0590 or email me at –

    Congrats Ivan. Our memories of our dear motherland will not fade so easily. As a matter of fact, they burn brighter as we age and long for the simpler life.
    Good luck with the book.
