If you're new to Sabbath and wondering where to start, the answer is right here. They set out their stall on their brilliant debut and everything that we love about them is here.

But most people considering buying this release will already be familiar with the album and to you I say, if you don't have this edition, you should seriously consider acquiring it, it's fabulous.

This is just a lovely collection. As well as being a master storyteller, and a weaver of deceptively simple prose, Klages manages to induce in the reader a sort of strange, bittersweet, displaced nostalgia for times and places one never knew. (I wish we had a word for it, I bet the Germans do!) Add fresh ideas and engaging, real characters and you have a book to swoon over, a literate page-turner.

I laughed, I cried, I read it in a day. Buy this book.
