Set over the course of one winter at a hospital in Washington, Across the River is a linked series of stories about the trials of the body and their meaning for the spirit. From the psychology of brain surgeons, to a suicide who has time to regret his act, to a college student’s first encounter with blood, Across the River brings together separate voices telling the common tale of how thinking beings encounter their own mortality.
