The Rings of Saturn begins as the record of a journey on foot through coastal East Anglia. From Lowestoft to Bungay, Sebald's own story becomes the conductor of evocations of people and cultures past and present: of Chateaubriand, Thomas Browne, Swinburne and Conrad, of fishing fleets, skulls and silkworms. The result is an intricately patterned and haunting book on the transience of all things human.

Recensioner i media

"Sebald is the Joyce of the 21st Century" * The Times * "Most writers, even good ones, write of what can be written. . . . The very greatest write of what cannot be written. . . . I think of Akhmatova and Primo Levi, for example, and of W. G. Sebald" * New York Times * "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 * "A great, strange and moving work" * James Wood, Guardian *
