Product description

Review

"Sebald is the Joyce of the 21st Century" (The Times)

"Most writers, even good ones, write of what can be written. . . . The very greatest write of what cannot be written. . . . I think of Akhmatova and Primo Levi, for example, and of W. G. Sebald" (New York Times)

"The finest book of long-distance mental travel that I've ever read" (Jonathan Raban, Times Literary Supplement)

"A desperate intensity of feeling is thrillingly counterpoised by the workings of a wonderfully learned and rigorous mind" (Sunday Times)

"A great, strange and moving work" (James Wood, Guardian)

Synopsis

A Walking tour through the haunted landscapes of the past, in the company of the exiled and the departed. The Rings of Saturn begins as the record of a journey on foot through coastal East Anglia. From Lowestoft to Southwold to Bungay, Sebald's own story becomes the conductor of evocations of people and cultures past and present: of Chateaubriand, Thomas Browne, Swinburne and Conrad, of fishing fleets, skulls and silkworms. The result is a book unlike any other in contemporary literature, an intricately patterned and endlessly thought-provoking meditation on the transience of all things human.
