Vertigo by W G Sebald

vertigo

Vertiginous stuff – another outstanding interior/imagined/real travelogue of the mind, taking in the lives of Stendhal and Kafka as well as Sebald’s own youth in Bavaria. The meditations and meanderings built upon travels around northern Italy and beyond are just exceptional and spellbinding.

Doesn’t get much better than this.

4.5 stars

Also, just spotted this blog dedicated to the author and related work which is well worth a look.
