Poet Juan Santander Leal has created an expressive mix of tradition and current events, of "stillness and delirium." Through prose of varied intensity, El Río Sábado explores conjectures, sentences, climates; proposes a journey that opens and interrogates different layers of the world that surrounds him and his own sensitivity: «When the eyes are overcome by nuances, indications for the amphibious personality appear. A quince rolls towards those who seek it as it leaves the sun during March. It is necessary to talk about the Sabbath River using the appropriate words, before the exercises recommended by autumn arrive, before the desire to build a pyramid appears. Now is when the perfect hand allows itself to be examined.
