Product description

Review

A fascinating volume that confirms Sebald as one of Europe's most mysterious and best-loved literary imaginations (Evening Standard)

Sebald was in possession of the uncanny ability to make his own intellectual obsessions, immediately, compulsively his reader's (Observer)

Shows a writer at his most inquisitive, gazing deeply under the surface of things (Financial Times)

Irresistible . . . an intimate anatomy of the pathos, absurdity and perverse splendour of trying to find patterns in the chaos of the world (Independent)

Erudite, truthful, moving (The Times)

A beautiful book . . . about the crazy quest for meaning, and how we persist with it despite the shadows that slide towards us (Joanna Kavenna Spectator)

About the Author

W. G. Sebald was born in Germany in 1944 and died in 2001. He is the author of The Emigrants, The Rings of Saturn, Vertigo, Austerlitz, After Nature, On the Natural History of Destruction, Unrecounted, Campo Santo and Silent Catastrophes among other publications.
