Reviews

  • A great, strange and moving work

    James Wood, Guardian
  • 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
  • Sebald is surely a major European author...he reaches the heights of epiphanic beauty only encountered normally in the likes of Proust

    Independent on Sunday
  • A highly original work...part memoir, part fiction, part meditative essay writing, and finally an essay for the dispossessed

    Sunday Telegraph
