For those who still hunger after more Sebald, this book fits the bill very well. A collection of essays and interviews with Sebald, it fills in many gaps, offering assistance to those who ask the questions:
- Are these novels or reflective travelogues?
- Are the characters Sebald meets real or imagined (or perhaps composite)?
- Who is the narrator?
- What is the meaning of the photographs?
- Are the photographs genuine illustrations of the events in the books?
- What is the relationship of the books to the Holocaust?
Sebald gave several in-depth interviews, the transcriptions of which are included in this book, and he seemed quite happy to talk about his work, its meaning and its influences.Read more ›
I found the transcriptions of interviews with the writer enjoyable as I did the introduction. One or two of those critiquing Sebald were, I felt, in a personal competition to be more clever than the author.
I would recommend this book
