Author of masterpieces such as Austerlitz, The rings of Saturn and Vertigo, Winfried Georg Sebald never shied away from the responsibility of feeling part of a people - the German one - which he believed had the obligation to take charge of the memory of the atrocities committed. In this text, the German writer and essayist tells who the characters in his books are inspired by, recalls the childhood spent in Germany and the choice to emigrate to England. Through a delicate collection of interviews and essays, Lynne Sharon Schwartz offers us an attentive and at the same time affectionate look at the depth of one of the greatest writers of the second half of the twentieth century.
