Austerlitz

Ausgezeichnet mit dem Bremer Literaturpreis 2002 und dem National Book Critics Circle Award; Fiction 2001

Austerlitz is W. G. Sebald's haunting novel of post-war Europe.
In 1939, five-year-old Jacques Austerlitz is sent to England on a Kindertransport and placed with foster parents. This childless couple promptly erase from the boy all knowledge of his identity and he grows up ignorant of his past. Later in life, after a career as an architectural historian, Austerlitz - having avoided all clues that might point to his origin - finds the past returning to haunt him and he is forced to explore what happened fifty years before. Austerlitz is W.G. Sebald's melancholic masterpiece.
'Mesmeric, haunting and heartbreakingly tragic. Simply no other writer is writing or thinking on the same level as Sebald' Eileen Battersby, Irish Times
'Greatness in literature is still possible' John Banville, Irish Times, Books of the Year
'A work of obvious genius' Literary Review
'A fusion of the mystical and the solid ... His art is a form of justice - there can be, I think, no higher aim' Evening Standard
'Spellbindingly accomplished; a work of art' The Times Literary Supplement
'I have never read a book that provides such a powerful account of the devastation wrought by the dispersal of the Jews from Prague and their treatment by the Nazis' Observer
'A great book by a great writer' Boyd Tonkin, Independent

Portrait

W.G. Sebald is one of very few German writers of the last few decades to have attracted both a broad readership in the UK and an international following of journalists and scholars alike. He has proved a huge inspiration not just to younger writers but also to artists and photographers fascinated by the use of imagery and images in his work. His books include The Emigrants, The Rings of Saturn and After Nature.
