      Author of masterpieces including Austerlitz, The Rings of Saturn and Vertigo, W.G. Sebald never shrank from his identity as part of a people – the German one – which he believed had a duty to take responsibility for the atrocities it had committed. In these writings, Sebald describes the people who inspired the characters in his books, his memories of his childhood in Germany and his decision to emigrate to England. In this delicate collection of interviews and essays, Lynne Sharon Schwartz offers us an attentive but also affectionate exploration of the profound gaze of one of the greatest writers of the second half of the twentieth century.

      Texts by: Tim Parks, Eleanor Wachtel, Carole Angier Michael Silverblatt, Michael Hofmann, Joseph Cuomo, Ruth Franklin, Charles Simic and Arthur Lubow.
