The Emergence of Memory
Conversations With W.G. SebaldBook - 2007
When German author W.G. Sebald died in a car accident at the age of 57, the literary world mourned the loss of a writer it was only just beginning to appreciate. Through pieces culled from essays, interviews and reviews, award-winning translator Schwartz offers a profound portrait of the late Sebald, who has been praised posthumously for his unflinching explorations of historical cruelty, memory and dislocation in post-Nazi Europe. With a host of contributors and a cogent account of almost all of Sebald's books, this is a testament to a newly-recognised master.
