Reviews

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 *
