Auteur: Sebald, Winfried Georg
This tenth anniversary edition of W. G. Sebaldís celebrated masterpiece includes a new Introduction by acclaimed critic James Wood. 'Austerlitz' is the story of a manís search for the answer to his lifeís central riddle. A small child when he comes to England on a Kindertransport in the summer of 1939, Jacques Austerlitz is told nothing of his real family by the Welsh Methodist minister and his wife who raise him. When he is a much older man, fleeting memories return to him, and obeying an instinct he only dimly understands, 'Austerlitz' follows their trail back to the world he left behind a half century before. There, faced with the void at the heart of twentieth-century Europe, he struggles to rescue his heritage from oblivion.
